Description: Police officer body-worn cameras have been promoted as a technological solution to improve police-community interactions. DC police officers wear body-worn cameras as they have been useful for training, resolving citizen complaints, and providing transparency in individual interactions. But do they impact behavior in police-community interactions? Through an experiment with the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD), we found that body-worn cameras had no detectable effect on police use of force, citizen complaints, policing activity, or court outcomes.
