On Saturday, August 27, 2016, several members of the CYNW gathered to meet with Police Director Michael Rallings and his team at the Cooper Young Community Association. Director Rallings was curious about how things were going with the camera program, so we gave a short demonstration and a neighborhood tour. Director Rallings was very impressed! His exact words were, “This could be a game changer for the city.”
We are absolutely thrilled to have such enthusiastic support from the MPD. Several members of the Police Department — as well as private citizens from other neighborhoods — have expressed an interest in learning more about the CYNW camera program and how it might be implemented in other parts of the city. We would like to thank the MPD for its support, and we’d also like to thank the wonderful residents of Cooper Young for being so proactive about keeping the neighborhood safe!
