The New York Police Department is about to embark on a pilot program where 1,000 patrol officers will be required to wear body cameras. The Policing Project at New York University is conducting a survey and public comment period for the policy, and we encourage you to participate in the survey. Please take a few minutes to take the survey and share your opinions about the use of body cameras.
The pilot program is a result of a lawsuit brought by the Center for Constitutional Rights against the city’s stop and frisk policy. It is one of many reforms mandated by the lawsuit. The use of body cameras by police raises many serious questions.
