Help Take a Byte Out of Crime

I wonder if the NHS will use the videos to track the patrons of donut shops so they can deny them service in the future ...

Police officers in the UK are to be given head-mouted video cameras to film incidents and arrests, the footage of which can then be used in evidence.

The Home Office is to give police 3 million to fund a national roll-out of head cameras after regional trials proved they were successful in fighting crime, the Government has announced.

I wonder if the Bobbies can turn them off, or if videos are accessible through a FOIA type request. Hmm..., do they even have FOIA type requests in ther UK? Or perhaps more importantly, the EU?
