Help inform the future use of Police Body-Worn-Cameras

Witness statements captured by police on body-worn cameras (BWC) are increasingly being utilised and submitted to court as evidence.

In this study, you will be asked to act as a mock juror in a trial. 
You will be asked a series of preliminary questions, review a case vignette, and view footage of a witness statement captured on BWC. You will then be asked to give your judgement, and a series of additional questions surrounding your perceptions of the evidence.

You will be sent a link to the study and a participant code via email after signing up.

*After full completion of the study, you may enter into the draw to win 1 of 3 $50 Coles/Myer Gift vouchers!*
