YOURSAY | ‘The equipment is only as useful and as good as the person using it.’

Dear Inspector-General of Police Abdul Hamid Bador, I believe every police station in the country is equipped with closed-circuit cameras too.

Next, they will say the video captured cannot authenticate the faces of the culprits. Yes, solve the current unsolved problems first, starting with the much-publicised gayIndeed, I can foresee that not long after introducing the body cameras for the police force, they will say that the video resolution is not good enough to identify suspects.I am sure Abdul Hamid is mistaken. Transparency and prevention of abuse do not depend on equipment but depends on the quality of the people.

As witnessed in the recent high-profile VIP gay sex video case, despite the presence of the video footage, somehow all the best technology cannot determine the identity of the person involved. Maybe, the Malaysian police need to wait for the body cameras to record the hate speeches first before taking action.

lol ...u never know what PDRM will do with it ...unless and until PDRM themselves observe proper SOP,all Malaysian citizens are in danger ...PDRM are no 1 assholes of Malaysia...they follow UMNO mentality....

There is hardly one honest person in the current set of PDRMsia personnel. Their motivation is rank and money. They will do anything to get that rank and money. So you can expect them to switch off the body cams when they are killing their victims.
