Abstract:Many police departments and law enforcement agencies are considering the purchase of body-worn cameras (BWC) for their members. BWCs promise to increase accountability during interactions between officers and the public. Officers and private citizens tend to behave differently when they know they are being recorded. Officers behave more professionally and are less inclined to use force unless necessary. On the flip side, BWCs also protect law enforcement personnel against false allegations of misconduct and abuse. The effectiveness of BWCs, however, can only be realized with proper training and policies established to govern their use. The purpose of this instructional design project was to develop and evaluate the effectiveness of a video-based online instructional module to teach security officers at the University of Hawai‘i (UH) about such policies. The two research questions that guided this project were: (1) How effective is the module in teaching the learners to understand the policies governing the use of BWCs on campus? (2) In what way has the learner’s attitudes towards the use of BWCs been impacted after taking this course? The collected data showed that learners scored higher and felt more knowledgeable after having completed the instructional module.
