What is Body Worn Video Camera

Body worn camera(BWC), also known as body cameras and body-worn video, or wearable cameras is a wearable audio, video, or photographic recording system.

Body worn video has a range of uses and designs, of which two well-known uses are Google Glasses and as a part of policing equipment. Other uses include action cameras for social and recreational (including cycling), within commerce, in healthcare and medical use (for example as a memory prosthetic for conditions that affect the memory[1]), in military use, journalism, citizen surveillance and covert surveillance.

Nascent research on the impact of body-worn cameras in law enforcement shows mixed evidence as to the impact of cameras on the use of force by law enforcement and communities' trust in police.
