Raleigh, N.C. — Raleigh police are seeking resident feedback about the idea of body cameras during the first in a series of public meetings that begin Monday night.
“It has to start with dialogue and actions following that dialogue, and so that is where it starts. The technology is just one facet, one more piece of equipment to add to what the officers are already out there utilizing,” said Raleigh Police Chief Cassandra-Deck-Brown.
The plan is to ultimately roll out body cameras to 600 Raleigh officers over the next three years.
During three separate meetings around the city Monday night, police will give a presentation explaining how the program is coming along.
The 45 minute presentation will also be made during the following Citizen Advisory Council meetings during July and August:
- July 11 and Aug. 15 at Abbotts Creek Community Center at 950 Durant Road
