1. Police officers complain that a citizen review board is not needed, and that citizens do not understand the police role and therefore cannot be objective when investigating the police. Does this opinion hold water?
2. Citizens complain that there should be a citizen review board to investigate allegations of police misconduct. Citizens’ groups even allege that internal affairs officers cover up for their own. Should the police be allowed to police themselves?
3. Using the web give an example of a case where the use of a body camera exonerated a police officer of a citizen complaint or sustained the complaint of the citizen. Should body cameras be made mandatory for all uniformed police officers? Why or why not?
