The Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) is set to introduce body cameras as a tool to help hold its law enforcement officers accountable and more transparent.
A surveillance system will also be put in place whereby even when an officer removes or switches off the camera they will still be known.
The cameras will enable enforcement officer’s record footage when they have interactions, such as arrests, with members of the public.
The equipment will also enable KCCA legal department to collect evidence during investigations or better defend their actions during a particular encounter.
Dorothy Kisaka, the KCCA executive director said this initiative will help rebuild trust with the communities and reduce citizen complaints. END
