Body camera technology may detect bad behavior of officers before situations escalate
One company is helping law enforcement agencies across the country monitor body camera footage for both bad behavior and positive interactions with the community.
RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- A crime-fighting camera from above and police body-worn cameras captured the brutal beating of Tyre Nichols in Memphis. Each punch, kick, and blow delivered by officers was captured on camera. But it's not until we have a Tyre Nichols do most people see what's captured on body cam.
"Most cities spend a lot of money on body cameras and for the storage, but they actually watch less than 1% of the videos," said Anthony Tassone. He is the founder and CEO of Truleo, an artificial intelligence technology company that's helping law enforcement agencies across the country monitor body camera footage for both bad behavior and positive interactions with the community.
He said this technology could have alerted Memphis police to the actions of the officers involved well before Nichols was beaten.
