NYPD Policy Questionnaire from MBBA

The NYPD wants your input on an important NYPD policy before it is finalized: their body camera policy.

The NYPD will equip 1,000 officers in 20 precincts with body-worn cameras.  In partnership with the Policing Project at NYU School of Law, the Department is seeking input into the policy that will govern the use of the cameras from the people who live, work or go to school in New York City through an online questionnaire.

The questionnaire may be completed in minutes and is mobile-friendly. The questionnaire may be found at  www.nypdbodycameras.org. There you will also find the Department’s proposed policy in full and in summary form. The questionnaire is designed to get feedback on the core policy issues the Department must address and it also provides an opportunity for the participant to provide narrative comments.

The site will remain open until July 31, 2016.  NYU will collect the responses and comments and provide a report to the NYPD for the Department’s consideration in drafting the final policy.

Please give your input, and please share this blog post with other members of your organization or community. 

Thanks to MBBA for sharing this important questionnaire with us.
