Assaults on police officers are increasing in Germany. But could wearable body cameras worn by the police prevent violence? In this documentary, we explore this controversial issue and its impact on not only the officers but also the German public.
Some say that the use of bodycams threatens the fundamental right to data privacy, while the police argue that they are effective in deescalating violent assaults. Join us as we follow two police officers on patrol in Mainz and explore how bodycams have become a double-edged sword in providing evidence in court and monitoring police behavior.”
