Thank You, New Police Chief, City Meeting Schedule, Body Worn Cameras

February 9, 2021 12:27 PM

Thank You 

I would like to thank everyone for the prayers and acts of kindness sent my way following my emergency heart surgery in January. 

 

New Police Chief

It is time for our community to begin begin working together to transform and redefine ourselves ourselves into a community that works for all.  It will take all of us to accomplish this. Please watch the swearing-in ceremony and the future envisioned by our new Madison Police Chief Dr. Shon Barnes.

Body Worn Cameras

Email from a constiuent, name withheld for privacy:

Dear Alders, Mayor and Committee Members:

It's time to move from theorizing, analyzing and discussing the pros and cons of a police body-worn camera program and implement the pilot program that was included in the 2021 budget for MPD's North District.

Almost two-thirds of the law enforcement agencies in the state already have a body camera programs in place including local agencies like Fitchburg, Middleton and UWPD. At this rate, the state may mandate police body-worn cameras long before Madison can even get a pilot program off the ground.

President Biden is on record saying police should be required to wear body cameras to "protect the safety and rights of police officers and citizens." And this summer WI Attorney General Josh Kaul said he would like to see the state help support the purchase of body cameras for agencies that don't have them. 

It's time for Madison to move forward on this issue. Please accept the thorough work done by the Body-worn Camera Feasibility Review Committee, and let's get the pilot program started in the North District.

Thank you!
