This subject draws a very fine line between law enforcement and invasion of privacy. It is not as clear cut as some may have us believe. On the one hand, the advocates of enforcement would propose that the cameras will capture the truth regarding the incident whereas their opponents will argue that the circumstances of the filming may not show the full story and therefore not reveal that truth. Today's technology does afford us the ability use it to law enforcement's advantage. However, that same technology also provides the means to doctor the same filmed evidence thus contradicting one view on behalf of the other. In my opinion, if used correctly and justly, law enforcement cameras provide the means to alleviate the process of collecting evidence. At present, our legal system has no totally fail-proof method of conviction or acquittal based on the evidence provided. The cameras would only be an additional means of gathering it.

I agree with dcdarter51; it eliminates the he said she said scenario. Everyone is accountable.

No, I think CCTV cameras are a great deterrent, as well as very helpful for law enforcement. I have little or nothing to hide, so I cannot see a downside.

As long as they are in public, they are not invading privacy.

I don't think it's invading someone else's privacy. It's placed in public places anyway, so there's nothing private in public places.

Cameras are not an invasion to privacy it is the criminals that are an invasion not only to our privacy but to our very being and sense of security. Get rid of the criminals and there is no need for the cameras.

THE CAMERAS DO NOT INVADE PRIVACY BECAUSE THEY ARE MOSTLY PLACED AROUND PUBLIC PLACES.THESE CAMERAS ARE FOR PUBLIC SAFETY.THEY ARE JUST TRYING TO PROTECT PEOPLE FROM CRIME BEING COMMITTED.SO I SEE NO PROBLEM.

No I do not feel like law enforcement cameras are an invasion of my privacy. I don't feel that way because those cameras are there to protect me and the officer, those cameras were put on officers so that their would be recording in case of false claims or evidence in courts. It's documentation, if you ever have to go to court against an officer whatever footage is on that video can be evidence for your case.
