Should All Police Cars Have DashCams?

We see it on the news, a citizen captures a video of a police officer engaging in illegal conduct during an arrest or traffic stop.  Such evidence carries much more weight in Court and in the Court of public opinion than does a police report.  Then why is it that all police cars do not have dash mounted video in the patrol cars?  One Redondo Beach DUI Lawyer has called for the implementation of a program to install video in all police cars that patrol the streets of the South Bay.  The bottom line is that it will protect both the citizens and the officers.  When a complaint comes in of officer misconduct it would be easy to simply “roll the tape” of the arrest to confirm or dispel the allegation.  There certainly needs to be a debate on the pros and cons of such a program.  In the end, some say it will save the cities money by offering solid evidence and putting a quick end to costly litigation involving police misconduct.
