More Rumor Control, please

A bipartisan group of 11 state election chiefs last week asked the Department of Homeland Security to do more in coming elections to push back against foreign disinformation campaigns aimed at undermining the U.S. democratic process. In a letter to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Acting CISA Director Brandon Wales, the officials, led by Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold, said that despite an overwhelmingly secure and successful election last year, "because of disinformation, some Americans now lack confidence in the electoral process."

But have the devices actually reduced misuse of force and increased the public's trust in law enforcement? Not quite, according to a report published last week by the nonprofit Council on Criminal Justice. One of the biggest issues, said Nancy La Vigne, the executive director of the group's task force on policing, is that often, officers just aren't turning on their cameras to record encounters. One fix, she said, could be using cameras with “auto-triggering” functions, so that they automatically switch on whenever cops exit their vehicles, draw their weapons or get in proximity of each other.
