CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department is changing the way it releases officers' body camera video.
The new policy forces the department to turn over all video to a Superior Court judge for private review, which would include videos before and after an incident.
This comes weeks after an officer shot and killed Danquirs Franklin outside a north Charlotte Burger King.
The court only got about two minutes of the video for review, but Mayor Vi Lyles said she and other council members were inadvertently shown more of that body camera video.
A judge eventually ordered the release of the entire 11-minute video.
