In Las Vegas, Body Cameras Reduced LVMPD’s Use of Force

Analysts from the nonprofit research organization CNA, working with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and researchers from the University of Nevada Las Vegas, have released new research on the impact of body-worn cameras (BWCs). The study, funded by the U.S. Department of Justice’s National Institute of Justice, concluded that BWCs are associated with significant reductions in complaints of police misconduct and police use of force incidents. The study also determined that BWCs can generate considerable cost savings for police by simplifying the complaint resolution process.
