But what about when officers are in the car with their colleagues having a private conversation? Would it be really fair to record all private
conversations, I know I wouldn't want my bosses at work listening in to what me and my colleagues/friends are talking about in private.
Just playing devils advocate!
A shop near to me has all its employees wearing a device that looks like a faceless wrist watch, in fact it can listen to them and track their
movements within the shop. I find that to be quite disturbing, so I do see the point your making.
However, I dont view the police as mere employee's, they are (supposedly) there to protect and serve the public, and they are given powers and
privileges to enable them to perform their duties.
Unfortunately we are seeing more and more policeman abusing those powers, and it needs to stop!
If good policeman reported on the bad policeman, then I'd agree with you about it being unfair that they should wear cameras, but that isn't whats
happening, the good remain silent and the bad are getting worse.
People are being killed by them, people are being beaten by them, some of them even rape people! Should people have to suffer all this just because
the police dont like wearing a camera?
They should learn to police their own, or expect to be fitted with cameras imo.
ETA: Kinda missed your point about while being in the car. Simple remedy. Tiny rfid chip (cost pence) fitted in the camera so that camera is
deactivated while they're in the car.
