Police from Across Country Turn to SPD for Body Camera Guidance

On June 23, SPD hosted a meeting for nationwide law enforcement agencies, privacy advocates, body camera vendors, employees of the White House Police Data Initiative and others titled, “Police Body Cameras - Public Access to Footage: Balancing Transparency and Privacy.”
