With the increase of police use-of-force situations being depicted in the media, there has been a call for police departments to become accountable and transparent. A solution to this call for accountability and transparency is the addition of body-worn cameras on field officers. While body-worn camera research is in its infancy, the majority of existing research has been limited to large police departments. This study seeks to fill the void between small and large police department officers perceptions of body-worn cameras. The data collected for this research was obtained between March and April 2016 from the Burleson (TX) Police Department.
