Back in 2014, body cameras were well known in law enforcement technology circles but not as widely used as they are today. So when POLICE asked our readers via Web poll on PoliceMag.com should body camera use be mandatory, many of the officers who responded had very little if any experience with these personal video systems. To put things in further perspective, this Web poll was posted just three months after the fatal shooting of Michael Brown by former Ferguson, MO, police officer Darren Wilson.
