Play • 31 min

The rapid evolution of digital technology has enabled the public to place the police under more scrutiny than ever before through the act of recording police operations via mobile phones. We have seen just how powerful this act can be with the tragic death of George Floyd in the USA. Dr Justin Ellis is a criminologist researching the impact of this increased exposure on everyday crime and police-public relations. His research has covered infamous cases of police using excessive force, particular at the Sydney Mardi Gras, and uncovers the hidden costs involved and the impact on police policy.
