Response to Survey Regarding Law Enforcement Body Cameras
The League of Women Voters of Tennessee does not have a position on whether law enforcement should use body cameras. In general the League believes that if body cameras are used as a tool of law enforcement that there needs to be a careful balancing of citizens' right to know about their government and their right to privacy.
