Dallas Police Halt Routine Dash-Cam Reviews

April 24, 2012  | 

The Dallas Police Department has shelved routine dash-cam reviews that mostly caught officers speeding, a move applauded by at least one police union.

"You had big brother watching the officers every move and monitoring speed," George Aranda, president of the Latino Peace Officers Association, told 33 News.

Incidents involving possible excessive force will continue to be reviewed.
