In this week’s Observer live videos

  • The Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department’s entire demonstration of its new boy camera system, purchased from BodyWorn. Deputies, likewise, ran county officials through the various triggers for the camera to record. They also highlighted the capabilities of supervisors to check in on deputies’ live feeds;
  • The Kenosha County Board passing the resolution creating the county’s Racial and Ethnic Equality Commission. That commission is tasked with reviewing department policy for signs of systemic racism and also offering suggestions to change policies to be more equitable;
  • In the county supervisor’s comments of the Kenosha County Board meeting, Sup. Terry Rose called on its Judiciary and Law Enforcement Committee to review the use of and also potentially eliminate the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department’s restraint chair in the Kenosha County Jail;
  • And the County Board passing a resolution recognizing LGBTQA+ Pride Month.

Live at downtown shots-fired scene

The Observer also recorded police responding to 57th Street between Sixth and Fifth avenues for a gunshot-wound call Thursday night between 8 p.m. and 9 p.m.

On the scene, the Observer viewed police and emergency personnel looking over one person. However, that man seemed to not have serious injuries.

The suspect had left the scene before police arrived, according to an officer on the scene Thursday night.

The Observer will share more information on that investigation as it becomes available.

However, for now, watch all of those moments mentioned above for yourself in the videos below.
