6:35 am
training of police, as well as body cameras for the officers, which thus raise the issue of technology and policing and also invites several questions. now back out live, we know that philadelphia >> we're live at police headquarters, justin tip. , cbs-3, "eyewitness news". >> it lace talk more about the follow up over the ferguson situation. it is a tough job for our phillies top cop. honored ton joined by the commissioner right now, commissioner ramsey, good to see you. >> good to see you. >> thank you for being here, appreciate t09 days, 09 -- 09 days, a lot has to go on. tell us your mindset. what do you have to do? >> one, put together members of the task force, we submitted some names yet to the white house, then have to start organizing our
6:36 am
structure, already have a framework we work on, as soon as we found out this was the direction the president wanted to go in, and now it is just a question of scheduling meetings, interviewing people, putting together all of the necessary pieces, in order to put together the recommendations that he's looking for, concrete, actionable recommendations. >> what casino every things do you think need to be done at this time? what casino every things will be you recking? >> i think number one is establishing trust, especially, in communities of color, and more challenged neighborhoods. here in philadelphia, and across the us, police have been engaging, community polices last 25 years, but communities have been left behind. >> some has to do with behavior of police, some has to do with the history, and just the fact that people are frustrated, in many of these communities. >> let's talk about behavior of police if we k technology, versus instincts, reaction, talk about the body camera pilot program, what it means,
6:37 am
what it can do? >> well -- >> pros and cons. >> i'm a huge proponent of body cameras. the pros outweigh cons in my opinion. we started a pilot yesterday in the 22nd district, which is in north philly. that's one of our busiest district if not the busiest, if it works there, should work everywhere. we have volunteers officers that are wearing these cameras, different models, for a period of time to evaluate, so when we start buying on larger scale, we'll know what we're doing. the down side is actually cost. not enough cameras, but storage, the infrastructure that you need, the wireless network you need for up loading, download g video, all of those casino of things, but it is all do-able. you just have to plan it out and budget properly. >> commissioner, just a moment ago, we were looking at the re outing happening in ferguson on a split screen there. how do you think something like that could be prevented if it were to happen here in philadelphia? what casino every things we doing in this city, that would make sure that wouldn't happen here? >> we've had demonstrations here, we've had one arrest,
6:38 am
that was an individual trying to get on i-95. and for their own safety they were taken off of i-95. so we start off before we even engage the protesters with a rye g of the first amendment to the officers, reminding them people have a constitutional right to demonstrate. listen, i wouldn't be sitting here as police commissioner if somebody wasn't demonstrating back in the 19 60s. that's just reality. we need to respect that. we need to safeguard that right that they have. but at the same time let other things go on as normal as possible. people need to be able to go from point a to point b without too much disruption. so it is having that balance, not being the story, let their message be the story for the media, not the police. >> now, between this regular police work, preparing for the pope, you must be, you and your department, must be very, very busy right now? >> we will be pretty busy for period of time, but i kind of like that way. >> do you reamy? does it charge you up? >> i hardly slept last night thinking about this.
