This chapter addresses the challenges and limitations of the BWC technology. For each perceived concern (privacy, officer safety, officer proactivity, cost, etc.), the authors concisely review the evidence and offer an assessment of the veracity of the claim. Based on the weight of the evidence, what can we conclude about the impact of BWCs on citizen privacy? What can we conclude about the impact of BWCs on officer proactivity? In this chapter, the authors answer these questions.

Keywords:   citizen privacy, cost of police body-worn cameras, officer safety and body-worn cameras, officer proactivity
