Judge delays Nassau police body camera program
A judge has delayed the Nassau County Police Department's body camera program for three months.
The 90-day moratorium follows a complaint filed by the Nassau police union to the state.
The Nassau PBA says the police department violated state law by not including it in discussions about how the cameras would be implemented.
The department announced in May that it would conduct a yearlong body-camera pilot program. It would involve 31 officers from the First, Third and Fifth precincts.
In a statement issued Monday night, Nassau Acting Police Commissioner Thomas Krumpter told News 12, "Once the matter is resolved, a formal Department Memorandum of Agreement, will be presented to the Nassau County Legislature for consideration."
News 12 made repeated calls to the head of the Nassau PBA, James Carver, but has not heard back.
