Residents can share their input on the Eden Prairie Police Department’s draft body-worn camera policy by Sunday, February 21, 2021. (View the draft here: Eden Prairie Police Department Body-Worn Camera Policy.)
Comments will be shared as part of the department’s presentation on the proposed policy to the Eden Prairie City Council, most likely at a March meeting.
Police say that body-worn cameras, used in conjunction with in-squad camera systems, “significantly expands the ability to capture video and sound from police interactions.” Police say in-squad cameras are an excellent tool for collecting evidence, documenting encounters, and providing enhanced transparency and accountability.
