NYPD Body Camera Questionnaire


[NYPD Announcement]

The NYPD wants input from the communities we serve on an important NYPD policy before it is finalized: our body camera policy.

The NYPD will be equipping 1,000 officers in 20 precincts throughout the city with body-worn cameras.

In partnership with the Policing Project at NYU School of Law, the NYPD is seeking input from the people who live, work or go to school in New York City into the policy that will govern the use of these cameras through an online questionnaire.

The questionnaire can be completed in minutes, is mobile-friendly, and can be submitted anonymously. It is designed to get community input on important policy issues, including the types of events that should be recorded and who should be allowed to see the body camera footage.

The questionnaire may be found at www.nypdbodycameras.org

This website contains a summary of the proposed policy, the full draft of the proposed policy, and the confidential questionnaire.

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

Please give us your input, and please forward this to other members of your organization or community.

We want to hear what New Yorkers think.
