Vidcie Survey Reveals 77 percent of Americans Would Feel Safer if Police Were Equipped with Body Mounted Cameras

New Survey Shows Majority of Americans in Strong Favor of Police Body-Cams

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Aug. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Vidcie, a provider of real-time video streaming and recording solutions, today unveiled the results of a study of American's attitudes toward police-worn video cameras, including sentiments about their potential impact on public safety and prevention of excessive force.

Conducted through uSamp, the study found that 74 percent of Americans believe police officers should be required to wear body mounted cameras and that doing so, would have equal benefit to both officers and civilians.

The survey, which includes responses from more than 1,300 American citizens, uncovered the following perceptions:

  • 74 percent of Americans are in favor of police-worn cameras
  • 81 percent of Americans believe police-worn cameras would have a positive impact in police interactions with civilians; only 6 percent believe they would negatively impact interactions
  • 70 percent of Americans believe that police-worn cameras would benefit both police officers and civilians
  • 77 percent of Americans would feel safer if police officers were equipped with wearable cameras
  • 80 percent of Americans believe that police-worn cameras would prevent the use of excessive force

In addition, Vidcie was able to analyze the data by a variety of demographics including age, race, income and geography, and further found that:

  • Younger adults (age 18-34) are less likely to be against body mounted cameras than older adults (55+)
  • 71 percent of Caucasians believe police officers should be required to wear body mounted cameras, compared to 88 percent of African Americans

"The potential impact of body mounted cameras for police is significant and can be a win-win for both officers and citizens in capturing questionable incidents," said Romulus Pereira, CEO of Vidcie. "At the same time, there exist inefficiencies with current body cam solutions that need to be addressed, from their inability to live-stream video for added real-time situational awareness and decision making, to improved secure storage so video can't be lost or tampered with."

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups. As a result, many firms employ new business models that place enormous importance on software-based innovations. They require not only skilled occupations, such as data analysts and DevOps professionals, with more technical skills, but also middle-level employees with more software and computing acumen. Both large and small firms operate differently.
