Full implementation of police body camera program expected in 2016


The Minneapolis Police Department is aiming for March 2016 to roll out a new police body camera program.

MPD Deputy Chief Travis Glampe provided the City Council’s Public Safety & Regulatory Services Committee with an update on the body camera program Wednesday. Thirty-six police officers participated in a body camera pilot project that ended in mid-May.

Glampe said officers had positive experiences with the cameras and many requested to keep using them after the pilot project ended. Officers captured over 7,000 videos, he said.
