Armed police in London will soon wear body cameras. This will
make what happened clearer when police shoot people. It
comes after the death of a 29-year-old Londoner in 2011.
Officers said they were trying to arrest the man, who they
thought was planning an attack. They said he had a gun. The
killing led to riots across the U.K. The man's family said he was
unlawfully killed. A public investigation recently decided that
the killing was lawful.
London police hope the cameras will make people believe their
story in the future. The police pointed out that it was rare for
London officers to open fire. Normal police officers in the
streets do not carry guns. Between 2010 and 2012, there were
12,721 times when armed police went to possible crime
scenes. Shots were fired just four times. A senior officer said:
"These are professional officers who want to be believed and
want the public to trust them."
