This month Charlotte-Mecklenburg police begin equipping all their officers with a new tool: Body worn cameras. They’ll record what officers see and hear – and come with the promise of building public trust in the force. But they come with many questions as well. Guest host Tom Bullock is joined by privacy advocates, legal experts and the chief of the first police force in Mecklenburg County to equip their officers with these cameras.

Guests
Chris Brook
- Legal Director of the ACLU in North Carolina

Christopher Woodyard - Assistant Professor of Law, Charlotte School of Law

Chief Jeanne Miller - Davidson Police Department
