Understanding the Impact of Police Body Worn Cameras on Public Defenders (Webinar)

Event Dates
Police body-worn cameras (BWCs) have primarily been discussed from the perspective of police.

As the primary users of the technology, this makes sense.

But the implementation of a BWC program has ripple effects on other stakeholders, especially downstream criminal justice actors.

An increasing amount of attention has been paid to prosecutors, but the defense has been virtually ignored, especially public defenders.

In this webinar, we will discuss the benefits and challenges of police BWCs faced by public defenders.
