Press Release (ePRNews.com) - PLANTATION, FL - Apr 19, 2016 - Babkes & Associates, a leading South Florida-based traffic ticket and violation law firm, provides advice and information on the new police body camera policy set forth in Miami-Dade.
In a move designed to countermeasure civilian cell phone footage during law enforcement activity, the Miami-Dade County Commission recently approved the purchase of approximately 1,500 body cameras. Police officers will begin wearing the devices as early as May of 2016. Discussion about and demand for the use of body cams has increased recently, with more and more public attention being focused on the problem of police violence.
Roughly the size of a deck of cards, the black device is mounted on the patrolman’s shirt near the badge. Police officials expect to deploy the first wave in the county’s Midwest precinct, which includes the City of Doral. Also known as Body Worn Video (BWV), the system tends to increase both officer and citizen accountability, providing a first-person account of incidents, and often, a more complete chain of evidence.
Even the American Civil Liberties Union (ALCU), long known for its disdain for government surveillance of the public, now considers them necessary because of their “potential to serve as a check against the abuse of power by police officers.”
As one of the oldest South Florida law firms, Babkes & Associates helps clients get their tickets dismissed in court, keeping their insurance rates from going up. The firm features a “No Points or Your Money Back Guarantee” and free online consultations. In addition, Babkes & Associates specializes in defending D.U.I. cases, sealing and/or expunging records, and more.
