Senator Richard Gordon got excited with reports that law enforcers in some areas will use body cameras during their operations.
He is confident that it will “promote accountability and transparency in the conduct of police operations.”
“This is very commendable. In fact, I proposed a bill requiring the use of body cameras and also dashboard cameras when conducting police operations,” Gordon.
He was referring to Senate Bill 1536 or the “Body Camera and Dashboard Camera for Law Enforcement Officers Act of 2017.”
“The alarming number of alleged abuses necessitates safeguards to protect the citizens of our country and to help in ending the culture of impunity within the ranks of our law enforcement agencies,” he said
“I hope body cameras will be used in police operations nationwide,” Gordon said.
