After a decade of trials, the Ontario Provincial Police has abandoned their initiative to equip cruisers with dash cameras due to cost concerns. The OPP said some of the incidents caught on video have served as useful teaching tools for the police force but since the Ontario government is reluctant to hand over more money, the project is being shelved. The police force has opted to equip officers in the field with body cameras instead of dash-cams.
Is this not something that serves both the police and the public? Should it be shelved?
