ROCHESTER, N.Y. — The United Christian Leadership Ministry is partnering with the city to help share information from the Rochester Police Department’s Body Worn Camera Program. The city announced the partnership on Monday.

The partnership will involve teaching members of UCLM about police procedures and body cam use, holding quarterly meetings about body cam use, and improving Freedom of Information Law requests.

“This partnership will increase public confidence in the work of the Rochester Police Department through an open exchange of information,” said Mayor Malik Evans. “I am grateful to United Christian Leadership Ministry for taking on this role and helping us strengthen the trust between the Rochester Police Department and the community it serves.”

UCLM also advocated for the city to buy software to identify officers at risk of misconduct, which City Council voted to purchase.
