Tuesday’s panel provided a lot of new information on the San Diego Police Department’s use of body cameras.
San Diego Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman gave more details on the department’s policies for using the cameras and said she thinks the videos should not be released to the public most of the time.
The other panelists, Margaret Dooley-Sammuli, the ACLU of San Diego & Imperial Counties’ policy director; Brian Marvel, the San Diego Police Officers Association’s president; Victor Torres, a San Diego La Raza Lawyers Association Board member; and Lei-Chala Wilson, the NAACP San Diego Branch’s president, said they support the use of police body cameras. They detailed their views on when officers should record, whether officers should notify the public they’re recording and whether those videos should be made public.
The panel was attended by local community members and the media.
