Body Camera Rule: How do you stop a policeman from turning off a camera?


My suggestion for the laws around body camera use is that body cameras should be enforced by law.  If the officer turns off his camera, then his testimony is discounted versus other witnesses.  That should be the law; turn off the camera, then you are treated as suspect. 

Body cameras should also have a log of when the device is turned off, turned on, and complete GPS location for the entire shift.  The more data the better.
