Carrboro Police are hosting two public information meetings to discuss the department’s body-worn cameras.

The Carrboro Board of Aldermen voted to approve a policy regulating the department’s use of these cameras in the spring of 2017.

Police said in a social media post that the department “will be presenting information on the new cameras and provide citizens with an opportunity to ask questions and gather information about the new cameras.”

There has been some controversy in recent years over state legislation limiting when police body camera footage can be released by the department.

The meetings will be held on Monday, October 8, and Wednesday, October 10, from 6 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. at Carrboro Town Hall.
