LAPD bodyworn camera audit positive; North Branch program policy OK'd

Lakes Area Police have gone through the first bodyworn camera audit of their history of using these cameras and passed with flying colors.  

Chief Bill Schlumbohm said state law requires biennial audits and the department has reached having two years of use.  Lakes Area tracked recorded  footage on its cameras and also submitted the calls and classifications for the two years to a state team that reviews the files.  It is determined if footage correlates with calls (ie: were cameras turned on when they should have been) and use and storage of the images are also reviewed.

The Legislative Commission on Data Practices and Personal Data Privacy oversees the audits.

Chief Schlumbohm reported the only suggestion received from the state is for police supervisors to do frequent random, “spot checks” on the camera contents compared to the day’s calls, throughout a year.  The state advised this be added to the camera policy that directs Lakes Area’s use of the devices.  There is a timeframe for public review of policy before a law enforcement agency implements the bodyworn camera devices, but policy can be revised.  

All agencies now using
The City of North Branch last week approved its bodyworn camera policy after holding a public hearing a couple months ago.  North Branch is the last in line on bodyworn camera use implementation locally. Lakes Area was first, followed by the sheriff’s office, and the Wyoming Police.
