It’s only taken two decades, but the LAPD is ready to install dashboard cameras in all squad cars. Officers in the Southeast Division will start using them beginning this Sunday.
From the LA Times article:
The cameras, which will capture video and audio of such encounters, are viewed as a vital tool for fulfilling a court order to guard against such racial profiling, as well as for protecting cops against bogus claims of abuse made by people during stops.
And, to be fair, protect citizens against bogus claims from cops.
