Body Cam



12 hours earlier, Officer Renee Lomito-Smith is being cleared to return to active duty after an altercation with a civilian and is paired with rookie Danny Holledge. They get a call from dispatch where officer Ganning is "failing to respond." Officers Lomito-Smith and Holledge go to investigate Ganning's last known location. Lomito-Smith finds the dash-cam footage in the police car, where she witnesses Ganning's beating from an unknown entity. They soon find Ganning's lifeless body hanging and call it in. Sergeant Kesper tells them the footage has been destroyed, long before Lomito-Smith and Holledge had arrived.




Body Cam



One of the men shoots and kills Birke as he takes Taneesha hostage. As he threatens to kill Taneesha, the entity suddenly lifts him into the air, freeing Taneesha. He fires his gun attempting to escape; accidentally killing the store clerk as well as his partner. Taneesha slips out through the back exit during the commotion. Roberts investigates the shooter's last location, only for his bloodied body to fall onto the floor from above. He attempts to warn Roberts the entity is behind him(as he cannot speak). The entity attempts to suffocate Roberts with a bag, and when the attempt falls, it lifts him into the air and kills him off-screen. The bloodied man dies from his injuries.


Officers Lomito-Smith and Holledge arrive at the store, and find everyone dead. Lomito-Smith investigates in the rear parts of the store, finding no one. She discovers the security camera footage is unusable. When she goes back into the store, she finds the phone belonging to one of the men and steals it hoping to find a lead. After returning to the station, she visits the medical examiner to get details about the victims. The medical examiner explains how the body is damaged in the most unusual way but points out victims had their teeth knocked out. Lomito-Smith pleads with the medical examiner to give her five minutes alone with the bodies. He agrees; but tells her she cannot steal anything or disrupt the bodies. She pulls out the phone that she found at the store, unlocking it with the thumbprint of one of the two men. Later that evening, she reviews the video from the phone, noticing the entity behind Taneesha and the man holding her hostage.


Renee inserts the flash drive into her computer. It Holledge's body cam footage of himself and officers Ganning, Roberts, and Penda during a police stop. It shows where they are yelling at a young man to stop walking under the assumption he is a suspect. Panda shoots him when the young man refuses to stop. Roberts hands the cell phone to Penda and goes the young man's backpack. Penda realizes the young man was Demarco, Taneesha's deaf son. Officer Holledge points out his teeth came out, but Penda tells Holledge how bad this situation. Penda suffocates Demarco.


The entity is revealed as Demarco's vengeful spirit, who beats up Sergeant Kesper and knocks his teeth out. Renee and Taneesha escape to another part of the warehouse, with Penda in persuit. Demarco's spirit finally takes his revenge; removing Panda's innards from his body and impaling him onto a large pipe. As Renee readies herself to confront Demarco, Taneesha reveals he will not harm her. Emergency services arrive to the scene. Renee and Taneesha see both of their sons together, signifying they have now found peace and can move on. Kesper, who survived Demarco's attack, is sent to prison.


Police have now released body camera footage of yesterday's attack on a Nashville elementary school. The video shows officers' encounter with the shooter who killed three children and three adults at the Covenant School. Here with the latest in the investigation is Chas Sisk, senior editor with Nashville member station WPLN. Chas, welcome.


SISK: Yeah. So the body camera footage, which was released this morning - it's very harrowing. And it shows about a three-minute encounter from the time that officers entered the building until the assailant was killed. I think one of the things that it shows clearly is that the assailant was either shot by officers or at least died during the encounter in the hallway, which took place on the second floor. And what you see in this video is officers very quickly and methodically going from classroom to classroom.


Authorities released police body camera footage Tuesday showing officers entering the Christian school in Nashville where six people were killed a day before, searching the hallways for the attacker and taking down the shooter.


The six-minute video shows footage from the body camera of responding Officer Rex Engelbert, a four-year veteran of the force. In the video, he approaches the school in his vehicle, parks and arms himself before briefly speaking to a woman who says students are in lockdown and gives information about the scene.


Additional body camera footage, from Officer Michael Collazo, shows a similar response: armed responders moving through the building at speed, searching for the shooter as sirens blare. On the second floor, Collazo appears to run past a body that's been digitally blurred in the video before shots are fired in the background.


Hale's body is then shown lying next to the weapons, including a rifle, the assailant used in the deadly Monday morning attack on the second floor of the Covenant School in Tennessee.


A second clip shows what happened from a different angle with footage from Officer Michael Collazo's bodycam. He is shown firing his pistol at Hale in the second volley of shots after the suspect was already on the ground.


In the incident reports filed by the officers and Alvernaz, none of them mentioned the former chief driving the unmarked police vehicle into a home's front lawn; instead mentioning the vehicle being driven into a driveway and on the sidewalk. On police body camera footage, the car can be clearly seen driving onto a front lawn.


The use of body worn cameras is expected to promote officer safety, strengthen police accountability, enhance operational transparency, provide for more effective prosecution, and improve protection against false allegations of excessive use of force, misconduct, or racial profiling while protecting civil liberties and privacy interests.


MEMPHIS, Tenn. (KTTV) - Police in Memphis released the body camera footage showing the moments leading up to the deadly beating of Tyre Nichols, an unarmed 29-year-old Black man who was pulled over by officers.


After the police shooting death of Michael Brown on Aug. 9, 2014 in Ferguson, Missouri, President Barack Obama requested $263 million to fund body camera programs and police training on Dec. 1, 2014. [38] [46] As a result the Department of Justice (DOJ) implemented the Body-Worn Camera Policy and Implementation Program (BWC-PIP). Between fiscal year (FY) 2015 and FY 2019, the BWC-PIP has given over 493 awards worth over a collective $70 million to law enforcement agencies in 47 states, DC, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands. Agencies in Maine, Montana, and North Dakota have not been awarded federal body camera funding. [40] [42] [43] [44]


As of Oct. 29, 2018, the most recently available information, 36 states and DC had specific legislation about the use of police body cameras. At that time, another four states had pending body camera legislation. [45]


Police body cameras provide visual and audio evidence that can independently verify events. In Texas, a police officer was fired, charged with murder, and sentenced to a $10,000 fine and 15 years in prison after body-worn camera footage contradicted his initial statement in the Apr. 2017 shooting of an unarmed youth. [12] [48]


The cameras also protect police officers against false accusations of misconduct. In San Diego, California, the use of body cameras provided the necessary evidence to exonerate police officers falsely accused of misconduct. The number of severe misconduct allegations deemed false increased 2.4% with body camera footage, and the number of officers exonerated for less severe allegations related to conduct, courtesy, procedure, and service increased 6.5%. [11]


Amid the Black Lives Matter protests after the death of George Floyd, a June 2020 Reuters/Ipsos poll found 92% of Americans wanted federal police officers to wear body cams. [54] A July 2020 University of Maryland School of Public Policy survey found 90% support for all police officers being required to wear body cameras, including 85% of republicans, 86% of independents, and 94% of democrats. [55]


Equipping police departments with body cameras is extremely expensive as forces have to budget not only for the camera but also for ancillary equipment (such as a car charger or mount), training, data storage facilities, extra staff to manage the video data, and maintenance costs. [26] Baltimore Police entered a body-worn camera program in 2016 for $11.3 million. As of June 25, 2020, the costs had tripled to $35.1 million. [59]


Many police departments, especially smaller departments with smaller budgets, have suspended body-worn camera programs citing rising costs of the cameras, maintenance of the programs, employees, and data storage. [27] [28] [29] [30] [60]


Assaults on police officers were 14% higher when body cameras were present. [18] Some people may respond negatively or violently to being filmed by police, especially those who may be under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or who are suffering from mental health problems.


This targeted deployment of body-worn cameras is a first step toward broader implementation and will allow CBP to more effectively roll out the program to additional personnel. CBP is embracing thoroughly tested and researched new technologies that efficiently and effectively support its complex missions. CBP expects to deploy approximately 6,000 cameras by the end of 2021.


CBP first conducted a feasibility study and an evaluation to determine the viability of body-worn cameras in operational settings in 2014. Findings from the evaluation noted that additional studies would be required ahead of any potential implementation. In 2017, Congress mandated an additional evaluation of Incident-Driven Video Recording Systems technology. CBP then conducted a six-month in-field evaluation from May to November 2018. The evaluation recommended deploying body-worn cameras to select Border Patrol and Office of Field Operations locations. CBP has since completed required documentation and secured necessary approvals and funding to establish Incident-Driven Video Recording Systems as a program of record. 041b061a72
