Community Information Meeting on Body Worn Camera Policy

The Turlock Police Department is inviting members of the public to participate in a review of department policy for the body worn cameras that officers will soon be using. On June 11, 2019, the Turlock City Council agreed to a five-year contract with Axon Enterprises to provide the Turlock Police Department with body worn cameras for its officers. The cameras purchased will utilize the most current technology, allowing the department to conduct a more comprehensive review of critical incidents, assist in investigating complaints from community members, and increased evidence for criminal prosecution. In addition, these body worn cameras will be equipped with GPS location functions and automatic gunshot detection which will increase officer safety.

The approximately one-hour community meeting will take place on Thursday, August 29, 2019, at 6:00 p.m. in the Training Room at the Turlock Police Department, located at 244 N. Broadway. Community members, business owners, and the media are encouraged to attend. A rough draft of the policy will be available for review. Community suggestions will be encouraged and there will be time set aside to answer any questions the public may have. “I want to be as transparent as possible about our body worn camera policy and implementation. This meeting is an opportunity for the police department to work collaboratively with members of our community to review and provide input of our policy which will serve to build upon the great trust and relationship we currently enjoy with our community,” said Turlock Police Chief Nino Amirfar.
