Inspector Michael Seales Says Police Need Body Cameras Urgently.

by | Oct 17, 2019

Following the killing of unarmed labour­er Adelle Gilbert in San Fer­nan­do on Thurs­day, former President of the Police Social and Welfare Association, Inspector Michael Seales says body cameras are needed in this country. Police officers have come under fire following the shooting death of Mr. Gilbert.

Speaking at a book hand­ing-over cer­e­mo­ny from Amal­ga­mat­ed Se­cu­ri­ty Ser­vices to the Po­lice Ser­vice on Wednesday, Seales said the en­tire in­ci­dent was not record­ed but body cam­eras could have as­sist­ed in pre­sent­ing a clear­er pic­ture to the pub­lic.

“Let me just say the feed­back should be body cam­eras are a pri­or­i­ty now. I have got­ten ex­pres­sions from the mem­ber­ship of what has been shown is just one ver­sion of the event,” said the senior officer.

“I’ve had the ben­e­fit of look­ing at it in its de­tail and I un­der­stand now that we need body cam­eras be­cause it would cap­ture footage from the in­cep­tion of po­lice ac­tiv­i­ties and not at the back end of po­lice ac­tiv­i­ties, which is what we saw. “
