Faulconer plans to move forward with placing cameras with officers

Faulconer also talked with Lansdowne about ways to improve recruitment and retention within the department, an effort he said will also be reflected in the budget.

After the scandals came to light, Lansdowne started to crack down on policies, announcing that from now on, two officers will transport female suspects to jail to prevent more problems.

Crisis communication expert David Oates said his strategy of transparency is working.

“Cameras are going live — access to the public without really any filtering process, without being able to say, ‘Well, let me start this again,’” said Oates. “His leadership team has really taken a forthright approach with that.”
