NYPD BODY CAM FEEDBACK
FEEDBACK ON NYPD BODY-WORN CAMERA PROJECT
The New York City Policy Department (NYPD) plans to assign approximately 1,000 body-worn cameras to officers in certain precincts throughout the city. This is part of a one-year pilot program to help determine whether body-worn cameras can help to encourage lawful and respectful police-citizen interactions and improve both officer and public safety.
In order to ensure that the NYPD body-worn camera program responds to the interests and concerns of the community it serves, the NYPD asked the policy Project at New York University School of Law to gather public input on how the cameras should be used.
Operation Mobilize conducted research, compiled our feedback to the program, and shared it with our friends to assist them with responding to the survey.
The Policing Project is in the process of preparing a report for the NYPD summarizing all of the comments received. The NYPD will then prepare a public response, explaning how the department adjusted its policy and why.
The report will be available this fall and we will post/share it when it becomes available.
