The Rockford Police Department has gone through over 600 hours of training on their brand new body cams. I was actually at the Rockford City Council Meeting for the initial vote on the Rockford Police Department obtaining body cams. It's been a long time coming, but here we go! WIFR

October 25th is the start date for RPD to wear the body cams. So Oct 25th the excuses and stories by those that break the law and then cry that the cops did "something bad," stops...right? For every false claim of abusing power or any absurd finger pointing by those that think they are above the law, you can now shut up.

If you think "oh they can just shut the cameras off" or subscribe to any other anti-cop conspiracy, there will be public hearing and interactive events talking about the new body cams:

  • Tuesday, Oct. 19, 10 a.m. at Katie’s Cup
  • Wednesday, Oct. 20, 6:30 p.m. at Beth Eden Methodist Church
  • Tuesday, Oct. 26, 6 p.m. at Empowering Word Cristian Center

These public sessions give all you tough talkers the ability to say whatever you want, and do it without hiding behind your keyboard.

I can hear it now, "yah, they totally edited that footage" or "Why did the audio cut out for five seconds, what did the officer say that they are hiding."

October 25th people, there's a new VIEW of local law enforcement.
