Body Worn Camera in the Spotlight

In the news this week, it was announced, under new government plans to protect people in debt, that all government enforcement bodies (bailiffs, agents, council workers etc.) in England and Wales will now be required by law to wear body-worn cameras, in an aim to target ‘intimidation and aggression’ used by some bailiffs.
