Body cameras and their impact on policing and communities is the topic of a three-day conference happening in Orlando this week.
The summit opened Wednesday at the Wyndham Hotel on International Drive.
Over 175 law enforcement officers from across the country are debating every aspect of the cameras over the next few days, from how to fund them to privacy issues.
Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey and Daytona Beach Police Chief Mike Chitwood will be speaking at the summit. There will also be representatives from the American Civil Liberties Union, the NAACP and other civil rights organizations.
“Our job is to make sure that just like the chiefs and the sheriff’s and the mayors that the rank and file deputy, the rank and file corrections officer, the rank and file police officer, the rank and file tribal police officer has a voice at the table in DC, when the decisions are being made,” said Bill Johnson with the National Association of Police Organizations.
The summit will also examine case studies on the body cams that happened here in Central Florida.
