Body Cam Plot: What is it about?
Body Cam is an action-packed series describing the live situations of police officers encountering crimes in their day to day lives. One can actually witness the pressure they sustain to take instant decisions on which their lives depend. With the help of the cameras attached to their bodies, audiences believe they are actually with them on the sites of crime. It gives viewers an idea of the unusual and potentially dangerous activities undertaken by law enforcement officers.
“Body cameras are meant to provide accountability and, while such footage oftentimes faces public scrutiny, we hope that this series will shed some further light on the dangers that officers regularly face in their daily effort to keep us safe,” said Henry Schleiff, Group President of Investigation Discovery, Travel Channel, American Heroes Channel and Destination America. “Indeed, by showing actual footage of these harrowing encounters, Body Cam not only offers an intimate and intense look at law enforcement but also provides the viewer with a visceral sense of what life is like for those who must, on occasion, risk their lives to protect ours.”
Some of the cases documented include law enforcement officers matching wits with a lone gunman, a deadly break up between two lovers, a little boy who finds his life at stake amidst traffic, and State Trooper injured severely at the hands of a killer, among others. Each unfortunate incident is closely followed as officers struggle to put an end to them.
