The New York Civil Liberties Union moved to file an amicus brief in support of respondents calling for independent oversight over the improper use of Body Worn Cameras in New York, New York. Submitted in the Supreme Court of the State of New York, New York County, in the case Police Benevolent Association et al v. CCRB et al, the brief highlights three compelling reasons why independent oversight over the improper use of BWCs is necessary to effectuate police accountability and transparency. The NYCLU argues that the CCRB remains the best available venue for these investigations because its mission and mandate uniquely position the agency to further transparency and public understanding around the issue of BWC misuse by NYPD officers.
