Mayor Frank Jackson, Safety Director Michael McGrath and Chief of Police Calvin Williams are launching an electronic survey to encourage feedback from the community about the police body camera system.

The Division of Police acquired Taser body cameras this year and the implementation of the system is well underway with three of the five neighborhood districts fully equipped.

Full implementation of the system is expected to be completed by year's end.

Residents can complete an online survey to provide feedback on how safe they feel when a police officer is wearing a video camera, or if they feel police use of body camera video is a step in the right direction. Users can also suggest areas they believe the policy should address, as well as submit questions for community advocates to ask police during policy development. 

Comments may also be submitted via e-mail at Clevelandpolicefeedback@gmail.com.
