Per Minnesota Statute 626.8473, the Minneapolis-Saint Paul Airport Police Department (MSP APD) is required to develop a policy for the use of body-worn cameras (BWC). Agencies must also provide for public comment and input and post the written policy and its intent to implement a BWC program on their websites before body-worn cameras can be used in the field.
The Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport Police Department is in the midst of establishing a Body-Worn Camera policy and program. The department advertised and solicited comments on its draft policy between July 15 and August 16, 2021.
The department continues to evaluate the policy based on public comments and new learnings.
The department is also evaluating vendors and expects to procure equipment sometime in the Fall of 2021.
This page will be updated when the MSP APD finalizes the policy and/or new information becomes available.
