Spokane Police Department update on body cameras.

22656667_SAA couple of months ago, INBA was host to a few members of Spokane Police Department talking about the implementation of body cameras into the police force. What follows is an update from Kathy Armstrong, Program Manager with SPD, on their ongoing use of body cameras.

Our pilot program took place from September 1-December 31, 2014 and we’ve moved into the Academic Phase of implementation. We are looking at the results of our pilot program and we are participating in two university studies on body cameras with University of Washington and Arizona State University. The ASU study, funded by the Laura and John Arnold Foundation, is a two-year project beginning on March 1, 2015. In June, 90 of our patrol officers began wearing cameras for the ASU study.  The ASU study has also involved many citizen and officer surveys, and the professors met with multiple stakeholders (e.g., defense attorneys, prosecutors, judges, Office of Police Ombudsman Commission) in late September to conduct interviews.

Spokane Police Department will soon release an audit on our body camera pilot program that will be available to the public. For more information, please visit this page, devoted to the use of body cameras in Spokane’s police force:  https://my.spokanecity.org/police/accountability/body-cameras/


If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We also continue to give presentations to the public if you would like to schedule a presentation.

 Thank you,

 Kathy Armstrong | Program Manager, OPA| Spokane Police Department
