APD hosts meeting on body-worn cameras

Monday, November 30, 2015 by Nora Ankrum

The Austin Police Department is hosting a public meeting tonight to provide information on its body camera program. The program is in its early stages, according to an announcement from the city, and APD is currently preparing to buy the cameras that police officers will eventually be wearing. The discussion is intended to update the public on the program, and according to the announcement, it will provide information on new legislation as well as on APD’s policy. It will also include a question and answer session. People who can’t attend or who would like to submit a question early may do so by texting “camera” to 512-842-4750 or by sending a tweet to @Austin_Police using the #APDbodycam hashtag. Answers to questions will be available online here. The meeting takes place tonight at the Palmer Events Center, 900 Barton Springs Road, second floor, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. For more details on APD’s body camera program, see today’s story by Tyler Whitson.
