CLEVELAND (AP) - Cleveland police officials have launched an online survey seeking feedback on their new body camera program.

The survey launched Thursday invites Cleveland residents and anyone who visits the city to weigh in on the cameras, how the footage should be used and what the department’s body camera policy should address.

Officials say officers in three of the five Cleveland police districts are already fully equipped with the body cameras, and all districts will have the devices by the end of the year.

The city and Justice Department agreed in May to a consent decree on police reforms after a DOJ investigation concluded Cleveland officers had shown a pattern of using excessive force and violating people’s rights. Officials say the city began planning for the body cameras before the DOJ investigation.
