Oh God, No.

Thank god Daley is out of the country right now:


From the LA Times:
  • Britain is attaching cameras to the caps and helmets of police officers, tightening a web of video surveillance that is the most extensive in the world.

    The country has a network of about 4 million closed-circuit cameras, and privacy advocates complain that the average Briton is recorded as many as 300 times a day
We saw that SecondCitySarge spotted this story a bit before we did. SCS also has a bunch of articles up we found particularly interesting:
And a bunch of other stuff. Head on over and visit SCS.

You know I'm not one whose opposed to camera's. Not those goofy things them limey's are wearing, but dash mounted camera's. I have been on countless traffic stops, street stops, disturbances and what ever else you can think of where people practically talk or act themselves right in to jail. i been in too many situations where we lock up Joe Scumbag, then he cry's for Jesse Jackson and OPS making complaints of abuse or excessive force. All of which could be shot down with the glance of a video.

We're on camers every day for mare than half of a tour from all the "pods" or camera's in the gas stations and stores we get our free stuff at. I mean if your not doing anything wrong you got nothing to worry anout. After all we're supposed to be one of the world most technically advanced departmentsin the world....right???

Big Brother's time has come. The city has over 900 PODs out there. Watch your step. They even used them to assist officers in that shooting at Wabansia/Cicero. Directing POs over the air on who to grab.

We get this, I quit. Part of the attraction to this job is freedom from supervision. Give me a camera, I'm gone. At least at my old jobs, I was left alone in my cubicle....

The only thing that camera will record is the trunk of my car. I don't think I've worn my hat (except for St. Jude's & award ceremonys)since graduating from the academy!

It interfers with the hair style!

Stupid ass English clowns. Look at a beach resort town near New Jersey, they have cameras but they are right in the center of the portable radio mike. The officer has the option of switching it on or off with a button on the front of the mic. Best part is you dont look like a retard like the Limey chumps. With those r cameras you cant tell its a video camera at all.

Not long before the day captain in 017 will be watching a split screen with 24 boxes instructing each individual officer in real time which cars to stop,which salad to pick out at corner bakery, and asking the officers why they are having a cup of coffee instead of runnig a mission on some nonsense. A micromanagers dream come true! I think I just wet myself!

This is scary, so very Orwellian. Anyone who hasn't read 1984 please do so, it is happening now.

WTF...why would you want an independant witness with you at all times. Do you like having big brother over your shoulder. When vulgar language is used to insult your office what do you do?? I guess your ready for that responce to be on tape. Why not be like the rest of those idiot P.O.'s on FX police shoes making videos of themselves taking to alot of shit because they have a dash mounted cam. You can't compare PODS and going into a gas station to everytime you activate your lights your recorded a minute before and after. Excessive force....be able to articulate on paper what occured if you cant dont do it. Working police do something wrong everyday in the eye of the media and public. Most technically advanced with my black box 1990 something PDT. You know your right, as long as we have the camera it can prove we did no wrong. But I can't help but think if I'm rolling and pull behind a car with several gangsta's in it that if I stop them based on that I may have problems with my probable cause and there's a higher potential for things too happen. So why stop them, when I can stop a 63yr old woman for rolling thru a stop sign and be super polite without any worry and I'll have a mover for the night and no cr#'s. Then everyones happy......of course the family of the 7yr old girl who was shot in the head while standing on the proch after the drive by shooting from the car I didn't stop might not feel the same.

I hope you make a boss so you can continue to give the job away with your great views on police management.

Thats because your a hack ass dog...and part of the problem with this dept. Maybe one day you will go to a 10-1 after you put on your shoes you pooch. You came on for a check and the medical.

Maybe that was over the top but i can't respect a dog on this job. We only see you at roll call and check off.
