Upcoming Body-worn Camera Roundtable Discussions

February 8, 2022 9:15 AM

The Madison Police Department is hosting a series of roundtable discussions to talk about the impact that body-worn cameras have on policing.

On Thursday, members of the public and city leaders are invited to participate in the "Share the Table" program.

The program is designed to build mutual understanding about the use of technology in law enforcement. Guests will look at case studies and research, participate in hands-on activities and engage in honest and facilitated discussions about body-worn cameras.

Patrol officers and department leadership will also participate. They'll share how these cameras will directly impact their work and answer any questions participants may have about this technology.

Body-worn cameras hold officers accountable for wrongdoings and could save a lot of time during investigations. The Madison Police Department has wanted to start a body-worn camera pilot program in the city for years. The one-year pilot program calls for 48 body cameras for officers in the city's North District. The Madison Common Council approved $83,000 in its 2021 capital budget, but city leaders have yet to approve the program.

Here are the details for Thursday's event:
