The Greensboro City Council will be able to view body camera footage taken by police during a family disorder call to the city manager’s home. 

On Monday a superior court judge gave a consent order to release the video footage to councilmembers. Officials say their request was made to verify that best practices were followed by the four police officers who responded to multiple domestic disturbance 911 calls on the evening of December 28 made from City Manager Taiwo Jaiyeoba’s home.

The police report from the incident stated that three family members  — Jaiyeoba included — were victims of physical assault. 
Monday’s body cam release is to the City Council only. Amiel Rossabi, a lawyer representing the Greensboro Police Officers Association, says he feels the city manager may have been treated differently than other citizens.

Rossabi says he’s joining in a legal effort to obtain a full and unedited release of the body cam footage that could be made available to the public. That hearing will be held on February 19.
