Garda reps are trying to justify the amount of money they want to spend on body cams.
It is estimated the State could spend up to €80m fitting members of the force with the recording equipment.
Antoinette Cunningham, President of the AGSI, says they are worth it.
She said: "You see snippets of mobile phone data being released quite often giving a wrong impression of the incident in its entirety.
