Body cameras for police officers


Several political parties (including two from the government – Moderaterne and Venstre) and the Police Union are asking for body cameras on police officers.  

  • The Police Union says that the number of complaints about police has never been higher. However, it seems most of them are unfounded. They already encourage police officers to film situations to keep as video evidence. 

  • Body cameras have already been piloted as part of an experiment in a few police districts around Denmark. The political parties that are undecided are asking the Ministry of Justice for a report on the experiment.
