Body camera recommendations absent in Ferguson Commission Report

October 08, 2015


By Travis Zimpfer 

State Sen. Jamilah Nasheed, D-St. Louis, thought she had seen something in the report about body cameras, in part because she saw them as an obvious need not only for Ferguson but for the surrounding communities in St. Louis County.

She said that idea is “one of the most important reforms that they could have recommended.”

“If you want to regain trust and stability with a community that is wounded, then that’s the best way to go,” she said.

Nasheed concedes certain kinks need to be worked out and that conversations can be had over certain reservations some officers have, including some measures that could expose victims of crimes

“The litigation, the lawsuits would drop drastically,” she said. “It would rebuild trust with the community.”
