All cops on patrol should have cameras in their badges

Think about it. If all patrol cars have dashcams why not take it to the next step. It could be time stamped and encrypted to prevent it from being manually disabled for than 5 min bathroom break intervals by an officer. Do a six-month trial run with cops that have complaints against them and watch their behavior magically change.

It would aid the good officers in evidence gathering and cut down on paperwork. All footage can be uploaded at the end of the day and be used later in training cadets in real world scenarios.

Bonus: No more "mysterious" deaths in police custody.
