Measuring Respectfulness of Interactions

Nearly 50% of police officers wear body cameras, but while hundreds of hours of footage is recorded per day at a department, only a fraction is ever analyzed and reviewed. As many departments look for better oversight and training of their police force, few are able to leverage body camera data as a source of insight into their interactions with the community.

Research shows that language used in police interactions as measured by humans reviewing body worn camera video shows disparities in officer behavior based on the use of respectful or disrespectful language.
