This is a bad idea. It allows the officers to present only the evidence that shows them in a good light, and delete the video that shows misconduct. It seems like something designed to allow the cops to manipulate perceptions.

I do not work in law enforcement and therefore do not understand the intricacies, but my understanding is that no officer would be able to have the knowledge of whether or not they had one. Which is how the Panopticon works. I honestly can't believe that so many people don't know the philosophy of the Panopticon. Just look it up.

I understand the premise, what I can't see is a way to guard against corruption. I'd assume that whoever is watching would be someone within law enforcement. Anyone on the inside would be prone to corruption that already exists.
