The forum was open to th public, and held at Turner Lake Complex from 10AM - 12PM. “Building Trust Through Transparency” was the theme and spoke volumes to the mission of implementing the BWCs. The panel consisted of stakeholders whom participated in this endeavor since its inception, and have been instrumental in assisting with guidance on devising the BWC policy from their area of service. Throughout the course of this year, the Body Worn Camera Committee consisting of members from all divisions within the agency and a team of stakeholders from outside the agency completed and submitted a rough draft policy to the Department of Justice for approval.
