posted by Andrew Julian - 

Civil rights organizations releasing news findings on how police body camera programs are working throughout the nation.

The scorecard, compiled by the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human rights, working with Upturn scores 75 departments in eight categories related to the use of the cameras, and dealing with the video.

 Included in those 75 departments are the Fort Lauderdale Police, City of Miami Police, Miami-Dade Police, and the Broward Sheriff's Office.

The scorecard found that the majority of the departments surveyed did not meet the satisfactory standards in several areas, including footage retention, public footage review, and allowing officer review of video, before its released to the public.
