POLICE OFFICERS IN some areas of London are going to start wearing body-worn video cameras this week.

The Metropolitan Police said, “Body-worn video will offer greater transparency for those in front of the camera as well as those behind it.”

Members of the public will be able to make a request for footage under freedom of information and data protection laws.

In recent weeks, there have been calls from Fianna Fáil for similar devices to be used here, while the Garda Representative Association has also said that cameras would be useful.

So in today’s poll we’re asking, do you think gardaí should wear body cameras?
