The DHS Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) has directed Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL) to implement a synthesis study to identify and summarize existing body worn cameras (BWC)-related research, specifically that which involves law enforcement personnel perceptions of an incident/event to compare with data/video acquired from BWC devices.
The goal of this initial research effort is to provide DHS S&T with a literature review summary of the current state of research and associated findings related to law enforcement personnel perceptions of an incident/event compared with data/video acquired from BWC devices. Gaps in this current state of research are identified. Recommendations are made for a possible follow-on study to address one or more gaps found in this review of previous research.
