Police To Archive Footage Of EVERYTHING They Do On Duty?

I recently announced that I was bringing back the Book of Questions series in which I answer questions from the 1987 and 2013 Book of Questions by Gregory Stock PH.D! If you’d like to find out more about this series or catch up on posts from the series that you’ve missed then please click here!

In this post I’m going to be answering question 11 from the 2013 Book of Questions!

The question is…

Would you like there to be a law requiring the police to archive video footage of everything they do while on duty?


I think this would be really useful for two reasons!

  • It would help improve the service because it would hopefully flag up any negligence, laziness or general misconduct.
  • It would help with police brutality cases because there’d be solid evidence to prove it.

I’m not into the whole ‘Big Brother’ spying thing, it’s wrong for many reasons but I feel like with the police it’s necessary, especially lately when you can’t pick up a newspaper without reading about something the police have done wrong.
