Do Moline Police wear body cameras? Are there any repercussions if an officer turns off his or her camera during an incident?

The Moline Police Department have Axon Body Worn Cameras and Axon In-Vehicle Camera Systems for the purpose of documenting evidence and accurately recording, through video and audio, interactions that occur between officers and members of the public.  Cameras must be recording at all times when an officer is in uniform and responding to calls for service or engaged in any law enforcement-related encounter while the officers is on duty. Recording must be turned off when the victim of a crime requests that the camera be turned off, a witness of a crime or community member who wishes to report a crime requests that the camera be turned off or if the officer is interacting with a confidential informant. This is governed by state law.

The Moline Police Department conducts monthly compliance reviews which are conducted by supervisory personnel.  All supervisors review at least one recording from each officer per month at random.

Officers are subject to discipline for violating department policy, including the Body Worn & In-Vehicle Camera Systems policy. Any officer or member of the police force shall be subject to reprimand, suspension from duty, or dismissal, according to the nature and aggravation of the offense.
