The Colorado Springs Police Department will now release ‘briefing videos’ after officers fire a weapon and injure or kill someone

KRCC: The public could soon hear directly from the Colorado Springs Police Department when officers fire their weapons and kill or injure someone.

The department said the planned “significant event briefing videos” are a step toward increasing transparency with the community. 

The department says the pre-recorded videos will include an account of the incident with information from police records followed by the playing of relevant footage from body cameras worn by officers. They could also potentially include 911 audio and photos of evidence.
