Community Input on the LAPD’s Video Policy
What should happen if a police officer’s body-worn camera records an officer-involved shooting or other serious use of force incident? Should the video be made public? And if so, when?
Between March 23 and May 7, 2017, the Los Angeles Police Commission invited members of the public to provide input on these important questions by taking an online questionnaire, attending a community forum, or submitting written comments. The Commission undertook this process with help from the Policing Project at New York University School of Law, UCLA School of Law, and UC Irvine School of Law.
The comment period is now closed.
The Policing Project will prepare a report for the Commission summarizing the input it received. That report will be made public at the end of June.
