Melrose Action heard from the Deputy Director at the Policing Project at NYU Law — that is helping the Los Angeles Police Commission gather input from the community on the LAPD’s Body Camera Video Release Policy. This is very important and your views matter.
As you may know, the LAPD’s current policy is not to release body camera videos after there has been an officer-involved shooting. The Commission is considering whether to change the policy, and is looking for public input on what the new policy should be.
This is a really important opportunity for people to provide input on a policy that undoubtedly will have a significant impact on both the community and the police.
We are asking for input in two ways:
– Through an online questionnaire at – (click the link) www.LAPDVideoPolicy.org — the website also has a brief video we put together explaining some of the pros and cons of releasing video, as well as a comment portal in case you would like to submit more detailed comments.
— At community forums across Los Angeles. The West Bureau forum is on April 12 at 6:30pm at the (map it here >) Seoul International Park Recreation Center.
