Minneapolis PD's Body Cam Test Program to Start in November

October 10, 2014  | 

Body cameras will make their debut on Minneapolis Police Department officers the first week of November, reports the Minneapolis Post.

On Wednesday, Deputy Chief Travis Glampe said the four models of cameras have arrived and he hopes to have them in the field in a few weeks. As part of a six-month pilot project to test the models, 36 officers from three different police precincts will try them out and give feedback.

Glampe told the Minneapolis City Council’s Public Safety, Civil Rights and Emergency Management Committee that the field-testing will help the department pick winners among the two companies being considered. It will also help the department complete standard operating procedures for use of the cameras, which will be given to all officers in 2015.

This would be great for our politicians to wear. Especially Obama.

Need them there. Is the Capitol of ISIS/ISIL recruitment from America. Buddy that retired & lives in Brainerd area says they call Minneapolis, "Little Somalia", & the State of Minnesota, "The Middle East of America." Sad. Sad indeed.

Capt. Crunch, your post, which of your agencies values was that comment based on?
