Published: Oct. 5, 2017

Associate Professor of Sociology Keith Guzik (together with Onook Oh and Ronald Ramirez from the CU Denver School of Business, and Tony Tong from the Leeds School of Business at CU Boulder) recently received funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to fund a 3-year project examining the impact of body-worn camera (BWC) technology on police organizations. The team’s study looks to contribute to the burgeoning research on police BWCs by exploring the technology’s impact on the organization of policing. More specifically, the team is looking to identify how BWCs enhance or pose challenges to critical operations in police organizations, such as report writing, evidence procedures, citizen complaints, officer supervision, and officer training.
