The Spokane Police Department will host community and media forums during the pilot phase of the body worn camera program.
The program was implemented on September 1, with 17 officers volunteering to participate. It will run through the end of the year. In addition to addressing technical and logistical issues, SPD leadership will use the pilot project to finalize the body camera policy, based on officer and community feedback.
A forum for the public will be held on October 30 to share the draft policy and hear feedback. That's scheduled for 5:30 pm at Cataldo Hall on the Gonzaga University campus.
Additionally, members of the public are encouraged to send their thoughts, concerns and comments regarding body worn cameras to the department at this weblink.
The pilot phase will end on December 31, with adjustments to the policy and procedures being made based on officer and community input.
