The Spokane Police Department has begun our beta test for the body-worn cameras, which will run until the end of the year. During this time we will be testing the cameras, the cloud in which the video is stored and retrieved, along with our IT infrastructure. In addition, we will be conducting community outreach to inform the public about the body camera implementation as well as to receive community feedback.
The policy for when the cameras are turned on has been a key point of discussion and with good reason. With any technology like this, there are always concerns for both police transparency and citizen privacy.
