City Conducting Administrative Review of Police Incident
On Wednesday Feb. 15, 2017, a Missouri City police officer observed an individual near Public Safety Headquarters videotaping the complex. Officers inquired about the individual’s identity to no avail. As a precaution, the individual was temporarily detained and subsequently released. Later, the individual identified himself as being affiliated with News Now, an internet-based news agency.
The incident is under administrative review and, upon completion, the City will take appropriate steps to address the decisions made by the officers.
“We are reviewing the circumstances surrounding the citizen-police interaction,” said Police Chief Mike Berezin. “We have received hundreds of inquiries from across the globe regarding the incident, and we appreciate all who are bringing forth their concerns.”
