  2. Facial Recognition Software

The St. Cloud Police Department recently implemented the use of Body Worn Camera’s (BWC’s) after a thorough research process including the development of a policy. These BWCs, and the policies directing their use, directly support the mission of the St. Cloud Police Department. The St. Cloud Police Department’s implementation of BWCs demonstrate a continued commitment to providing highly effective and transparent public safety services.  

The policy below was developed in accordance with the requirements in Minnesota Statutes 13.825 and 626.8473. The St. Cloud Police Department is committed to these guidelines and the approved BWC policy reflects that commitment. Minnesota Statute 13.825 provides guidelines to law enforcement agencies for BWC data classification, retention of data, authorization of access to data, inventory of BWC’s, sharing data among agencies, and biennial audits.

For more information, please review the St. Cloud Police Department’s Body Worn Camera Policy and the General Records Retention Schedule for Minnesota Cities in accordance with MN Statute.
