James, the police watchdog, told commissioners that some camera policies allow police to turn off their cameras when interviewing informants.

"The rationale often given is that police informants will be reluctant to talk with police out of fear of exposure if they are recorded. One of the leading causes of wrongful convictions is the false testimony of police informants. The better policy is to require that conversations between police and informants should be recorded, but not released to the defense or prosecution without appropriate protective orders," he said.

City policy does not detail whether to record informants.
