Starting Sept. 1, traffic police officers in Serbia would be using 60 body cameras for enforcing traffic laws thanks to a donation of the U.S., it was said in Belgrade on Aug. 15 during the handover ceremony. 

The cameras will be worn by traffic police officers and will also be used in police interceptor vehicles for capturing moving violations. The ceremony was attended by Serbian Interior Minister Bratislav Gasic and U.S. Ambassador to Belgrade Christopher Hill. 

Ambassador Hill said that the cameras would increase transparency of traffic police work and would also boost citizens’ trust in the police officers who enforced traffic laws and managed traffic.

Gasic said that the plan was to increase the number of body cameras, noting that their use also aimed to increase citizens’ trust in the police. He added that the cameras would protect the integrity of traffic officers and also of citizens. Gasic also said that the entire course of police interventions would be recorded, while the footage could be used as evidence only on court order.
