On June 6, a rally for police reform was held in Macomb County, attracting thousands of participants. Three young women, calling themselves AMA, hosted the rally. This rally inspired me to improve policing in our community. It seemed that the best foot forward at the time was body-worn cameras for our officers.
On June 16, I added a discussion to our agenda regarding body-worn cameras. And then on August 11, the City Council voted to move forward with a bid process for the cameras.
I am hoping that the cameras are adopted and implemented before the start of 2021!
