Example (information in red below):

Body worn video (also called "on-officer recording systems," "body cams," or "cop cams") are small pager-sized cameras that clip on to an officer's uniform or are worn as a headset, and record audio and video of the officer's interactions with the public.


Please tell me if you strongly agree, agree, disagree, or strongly disagree with the following statement...I would feel safer if a police officer was wearing a video camera (i.e. body cam, cop cam, etc.).


It is useful to consult with CSR staff before determining the number and type of questions to be asked.
