PCOC Seeks Public Input on Body Cameras– Second of Three Listening Sessions This Saturday!

Body Camera Flyer- Best QualityIn a continuing effort to seek public input on the use of police body cameras in Minneapolis prior to the rollout of the program in 2016, the Minneapolis Police Conduct Oversight Commission will hold a second community listening session on Saturday, July 11. The Commission held its first of three listening sessions on Saturday June 27th where community members were able to view body camera footage, consider issues of body camera policy, and provide direct feedback to the Commission.

The second listening session is scheduled for 10 a.m. on Saturday, July 11th at Sabathani Community Center, Banquet Room, 310 East 38th Street.

As with the first session, all Minneapolis residents are encouraged to attend. The key topics covered will be the activation of body cameras, deactivation of cameras, restrictions on camera use, notification of recording, and viewing recordings.

The third listening session will take place at 10 a.m. on Saturday July 25th at the Minneapolis Adult Education Center, 2225 East Lake Street, Room 140.

For those unable to attend either of the two remaining listening sessions, any community comments on the Minneapolis Police Department’s implementation of body cameras can be submitted to the Police Conduct Oversight Commission via email at pcoc@minneapolismn.gov.

The Police Conduct Oversight Commission is a group of seven civilians, appointed by the City Council and the Mayor, who provide meaningful participatory oversight of the Minneapolis Police Department’s policy and procedure by shaping police policy, auditing cases, engaging the community in discussions of police procedure, and facilitating cultural awareness trainings for the Minneapolis Police Department.
