“What tape exists of the first critical incident in the Midway district, due to a security camera, has not been released by the department. Chief Shelley Zimmerman has gone so far as to state that releasing these videos will be on a riot standard. Not only is the language itself provocative, but it reveals a lack of transparency on the part of the department. San Diego Police is known for it’s penchant for almost military secrecy, and keeping things vague. Yet, they speak often about community policing. Yes, the Department once led the nation in the process of creating community policing. These days It is the largest urban department with this wide spread deployment of body cameras which has not led to increased transparency.”
