Washington, DC Metropolitan Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier will present a talk at the 2015 Government Video Expo that will address her department’s experience with police body cameras. Lanier’s talk will be on Thursday, Dec. 3, at the Washington Convention Center.
With the title of “Police Body Cameras and the Urban Patrol,” Chief Lanier’s presentation will cover the issues concerning the use of body cameras, including what they mean to the department, its officers and the legal system.
Chief of Police Cathy L. Lanier has spent her entire law enforcement career with the Washington, DC Metropolitan Police Department, beginning in 1990. Much of her career has been in uniformed patrol, where she served as commander of the Fourth District, one of the largest and most diverse residential patrol districts in the city. In 2006, the MPD’s Office of Homeland Security and Counter-Terrorism was created, and Chief Lanier was tapped to be its first commanding officer. She was appointed and confirmed as the city’s chief of police in 2007.
Other major presenters at the 2015 GV Expo will be Captain Bob Blakley of the Fairfax County (Va.) Police, and Nantz Rickard, president of the Washington, DC cable access channel.
