Fond du Lac PD to host community listening sessions addressing body-worn camera policy

FOND DU LAC, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The Fond du Lac Police Department (FDLPD)  announced plans to host a series of community-wide listening sessions aimed at gathering feedback on a body camera policy. 

The department says they plan to launch the body camera program during the first quarter of 2022. 

As part of the program, FDLPD is establishing a department policy for the use and operation of the cameras, "addressing best practices, when an officer should activate or deactivate a camera, how an officer should notify the public about record, what types of privacy protections should be put in place, and more."

"We want to ensure that our body-worn camera program aligns with our community's expectations," said Chief Aaron Goldstein. 

The draft policy has been posted to the police department's website under the "accreditation" tab for the community to review. 

The listening sessions will take place on Feb. 21 from 4-5:30 p.m. and Feb. 25 from 8:30 a.m.-10 a.m. Both will be located at City Council Chambers at 160 S. Macy Street. 

Those interested in speaking may sign up at the entrance upon arrival.
