NEWS GRAPHIC 3Even though she is no longer Director of the Police Complaints Authority, her influence on the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service continues.

There is word that a measure that Gillian Lucky recommended is about to be realized.

The introduction and use of body cameras by officers of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service is on the cusp of being implemented.

The Trinidad and Tobago Police Service has already acquired the first batch of units and in the coming days.

Acting Commissioner of Police Stephen Williams is expected to announce how and where they will be used.

Body cameras are being put to use in many police agencies around the world with the goal of improving police-citizen relationships and adding another means of accountability to govern officer’s actions as well as providing evidence should complaints arise.

This year, there have been several complaints made against police officers alleging abuse of power or wrongful use of force.

While carrying out their duties, 39 citizens have been killed by police so far in 2014.
