Dutch police officially started using bodycams eight years ago – although the oldest sightings of Dutch police officers outfitted with a ‘bobbycam’ date back twenty years. Such camera’s are another tool of surveillance, unless there is a solid policy governing their use. Of course, at the time of writing this summary, this policy is lacking. In this talk I’ll give an overview of the use of bodycams by the Dutch police in the last twenty years, explain the up- and downside for you and me and I’ll provide a summary of my policy recommendations.
