Program Review and Public Comments Being Accepted
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 MSP APD is now accepting comments from the public prior to implementing a BWC program.
Public comments are being accepted from Thursday, July 15, 2021, through Monday, August 16, 2021. Written comments will be accepted until 1 p.m. on August 16, 2021. In-person comments will close upon the conclusion of the full Commission meeting on August 16.
