Power of Perspective - Body Camera Footage
As veteran peace officer and a techie, I firmly believe in the use of body cameras for patrol. In the video below from the Trinity Police Department, you'll clearly see the power of perspective that body cameras afford. The first three minutes of the video is shown from the dash camera perspective and with it alone, the actions from the officer unfortunately could have been left for question in today's heated environment. From the dash camera, it shows the officer presenting his firearm but the provocation is unclear.
The next two minutes of footage however tell a completely different story as its from the officer's perspective via a body camera. This footage clearly shows that the officers actions were well within use-of-force thresholds.
