Today, the Filipino people will finally have the eyes and ears in law enforcement and in the implementation of peace and order in the country.
The procurement and eventually the use of body cameras is a tribute not only to Kian delos Santos who died of police abuse in Caloocan City, but also to the policemen whose ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty were tainted by extrajudicial killings, planting of evidence and other unfair allegations.
Ito pong mga body worn camera natin na matagal na nating pinag-uusapan, bagamat ito ay hindi sapat sa lahat ng ating police stations, gusto po namin ito’y simulan na.
In our case, ito pong mga normal patrolling dadalhin din po natin yan. So each city police station was given units nitong body cam which could be used, maximize the use of this, in the conduct of not just operations but regular patrolling.
~ PNP Chief Guillermo Eleazar
