Police Conduct Oversight Commission survey at Pride 2015

The Office of Police Conduct Review, in partnership with the Police Conduct Oversight Commission, attended the Twin Cities Pride Festival this past weekend, continuing the work to collect public comment on the Minneapolis Police Department’s use of body worn cameras while celebrating this esteemed event.  The above chart captures the results of the survey.
