Mpls. set to buy body cameras, but uncertain of how quickly it can share the footage


As Minneapolis prepares to outfit all of its police officers with body cameras, the police department division that will respond to public requests for the cameras’ footage is already staggering under the weight of a growing backlog of records requests.

Officials said this week that the number of requests handled by the Minneapolis Police Department’s Records Information Unit has grown by 400 percent in the last few years. Between 2014 and 2015 alone, the number of annual requests soared from between 70,000 and 80,000 to approximately 150,000.
