Cell phone videos of police more common

The leader of a statewide organization says police officers are well-aware that the public is watching them closely.

Jim Palmer of the Wisconsin Professional Police Association says police are held to a higher standard, and the ability to take cell phone videos of their actions increases that scrutiny.

Green Bay police and the state justice department cleared Green Bay officer Derek Wicklund of any wrongdoing, after an investigation that was sparked by a viral video.

Palmer says when a video like that goes viral, it makes extra work for a department, but that's not a problem.

Palmer says a video from a bystander may not tell the whole story.
