Objecting to the NYPD’s Body Worn Cameras Operations Order

Amicus Letter in Floyd

Harlan Yu and Miranda Bogen

Amicus brief

In Floyd v. City of New York, Upturn files an objection to the NYPD’s proposed body-worn camera policy, together with the Leadership Conference, the Center for Media Justice, Color Of Change, and other groups. We argue that the Court should require the NYPD to amend its order to follow nationwide best practices, such as mandatory recording, writing reports prior to viewing footage, and creating a process for releasing footage to recorded individuals.
