A study on the effects of body-worn cameras on police use-of-force that was produced by Police Foundation Executive Fellow Tony Farrar, Retired Chief of the Rialto Police Department, has been published in the Journal of Quantitative Criminology, a scientific publication. The article has received nationwide recognition as the first ever scientific study of how body-worn cameras affect police interaction with the public. The journal article, written by Retired Chief Farrar and his fellow researchers Dr. Arial Barak and Dr. Alex Sutherland of Cambridge University (UK), has been widely cited by national media over the past years.  

The study was one of three international winners of the 2014 IACP/Motorola Solutions Webber Seavey Award for Excellence in Law Enforcement presented at the International Association of Chiefs of Police Annual Conference in Orlando in October. The award recognizes law enforcement agencies that have developed innovative programs within their communities to address a specific need. The study also won the 2013 Award for Excellence in Evidence-Based Policing from the Society of Evidence-Based Policing at its 2013 conference at the University of Cambridge (UK).

 In an article announcing the new Journal of Quantitative Criminology article, Cambridge University said the experiment “showed that evidence capture is just one output of body-worn video, and the technology is perhaps most effective at actually preventing escalation during police-public interactions: whether abusive behavior towards police or unnecessary use-of-force by police.”

The study prepared by Retired Chief Farrar has been widely cited during the on-going debate about how to improve relations between police and the communities they serve. President Obama urged police departments to consider the technology, and asked Congress to provide funding for 50,000 body-worn cameras nationwide. Retired Chief Farrar said he is pleased that his research has played a role in furthering the discussion on body-worn cameras.

"I am truly honored to be part of a research study that has had such a significant impact on the policing profession; not just locally, but across the United States and around the world," Retired Chief Farrar said.

Synopsis: On December 24, 1980 (Christmas Eve) at approximately 9:45 p.m., Charles Osberg was seated inside his residence watching a Christmas television show with his friends and family. Without warning, a snipers’ bullet tore through the residence window, striking Mr. Osberg in the neck, killing him. He was 44 years old at the time of his murder. Moments before the murder, a witness inside the residence observed a 1977 or 1978 white Cadillac drive slowly past three or four times. It is unknown if the occupant(s) in this Cadillac were involved in Osberg’s murder. Mr. Osberg was employed as the plant manager for CalPortland Cement Company in Colton, California (now known as CalPortland Company). The motive for his murder is unclear. In the three years prior to Mr. Osberg’s murder, there were numerous arsons and non-fatal attacks directed at the plant’s supervisory personnel. The crimes were believed to have been committed by disgruntled employees because of the decisions the supervisory personnel (including Mr. Osberg) were making at the time. CalPortland Company will still honor the $25,000 reward offered in 1980 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the murder of Charles George Osberg.
