You've been telling us what you think about a pilot by the Met Police for 400 officers to wear cameras and microphones. Join the debate by tweeting us

John Otf Drumonandon That's fine, as along as there are no "D" notices on evidence. As long we the people keep recording them on our phones and devices they are held accountable.
It works both ways. If you want to live in a CCTV 1984 Orwellian state then they have to be just as accountable to us as we are to them.

In the Met we're having a pilot over the next few months which has got about 400 officers who are going to wear these things. We're all approaching it with some care.
If we've got nothing to hide, let's be open. Let's just be clear that it doesn't change the nature of the relationship with the public.

Met Police Officers will wear cameras and microphones while on patrol in London as part of a new trial. Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe says it could help make police more open and accountable and allow them to check information.
