Connections: RPD Body Worn Camera Project

May 31, 2016

Rochester police are getting ready to use body cameras. How will they work?

The cameras will be operational in July, and we talk to Chief Michael Ciminelli and Captain Kevin Costello about how the BWC project is laid out. (BWC is the city's shorthand for "Body Worn Cameras.")

We take listener questions about the approach, when the cameras will be turned on and off, when the public will be allowed to see pieces of video, and more. Our guests:

  • Chief Michael Ciminelli
  • Captain Kevin Costello
