Abuse of Force: ABC15 confronts Glendale police about no-camera briefing

• ABC 15


GLENDALE, AZ — Glendale police refused to let cameras inside to record a briefing where officials promised they would share everything with the media surrounding repeated use of force by its officers in a 2017 traffic stop .

"This is a full information briefing. We're going to give you all the information on recording once you guys leave," a police official, who did not identify himself, told reporters gathered outside the department's training facility Monday afternoon.

When pressed about why the public would not be able to hear directly from the police themselves, officials indicated that they would tell the media and then the media would inform the public.

Reporters were let into the building around 4:30 p.m. The briefing, which was originally scheduled for 2:30 p.m., was postponed Monday afternoon to 4 p.m.
