NYPD Must Use On-Body Video, Judge Says

A federal judge ruled Monday that NYPD officers in the five precincts with the most stop-and-frisks would begin wearing on-officer video systems to prevent inappropriate behavior.

Under Judge Shira Scheindlin's ruling, NYPD officers would be assigned the cameras in Brooklyn's 75th Precinct (East New York), the Bronx's 40th Precinct (Mott Haven), Queens' 103rd Precinct (Jamaica), Staten Island's 120th Precinct (St. George), and Manhattan's 23rd Precinct (East Harlem), reports the New York Daily News.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who vowed to appeal the order, said the cameras are "not a solution to the problem."

Judge Scheindlin ruled the NYPD's stop-and-frisk policy violated the civil rights of many of the blacks and Latinos who were stopped. She called for an independent monitor to oversee changes to the policy including training, supervision, monitoring, and discipline.
