Body camera footage discovered by the city attorney’s office after a homeless man was convicted of an infraction shows a San Diego Police officer gave false testimony multiple times under oath. The city attorney’s office didn’t notify SDPD about the officer until contacted by Voice of San Diego.

MTS has outfitted its own officers with body cameras since 2014 but still has no official policies guiding their use or the release of footage. Now, it’s outfitting private contractors with cameras too – but that footage will stay private.

Security officers believed Allen Koka was trespassing when he showed up to his cleaning job at MTS headquarters in 2014. They arrested him in a violent encounter even after a supervisor confirmed he worked there. Among the MTS officers involved were two who have been accused of violence before and remain on the job, a joint investigation by Voice of San Diego and NBC 7 Investigates has found.

As the San Diego Sheriff’s Department prepares to roll out a test run of body cameras, the citizen oversight group that investigates complaints against the department says the sheriff needs to tweak its policies. The group’s No 1 concern: Don’t let deputies review the footage before they write up reports.

Voice of San Diego’s Liam Dillon makes a guest appearance to talk with Mike Wagers, the chief operating officer with the Seattle police, about what prompted them to make all of their dashboard and body camera video footage available for the public to view.
