MUMBAI : Mutual Fund (MF) Registrar and Transfer Agents (ATR) KFin Technologies Pvt. Ltd or KFintech and Computer Age Management Services (CAMS) Ltd have launched a website called MF Central, following a directive from the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) to RTAs to provide a platform for MF transactions by December 31.

Investors will be able to obtain a consolidated statement of their holdings and transactions in the FCP and will also be able to make service requests via the platform.

The platform, which will be launched on September 23, will, in its first phase, be open only to Indian residents who are existing investors in MFs. Only service requests were activated in the first phase. Users can request changes to bank accounts, update the IFSC code if changed, mobile phone numbers and email addresses, as well as register up to five bank accounts and submit applications. They will also be able to change their withdrawal from Income Distributing Capital (IDCW) or their dividend option, such as switching from IDCW reinvestment to payout or vice versa. Users can also consolidate their MF folios, correct erroneous data, provide FATCA (Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act) details and update their status from minor to major.

A mobile application will be launched during phase 2. Users will be able to claim unclaimed dividends from previous periods during this phase.

Users will be able to perform financial transactions such as buy and redeem in phase 3.

People can log into MF Central by providing their Permanent Account Number (PAN) and registered cell phone number. Subsequently, a one-time password will be sent to the mobile number for authentication.

Users can consult their assets on all MFs. However, the credit notes in demat form will be displayed with a lag.

The platform is free to users, and RTAs plan to monetize it through other means.

“There will be opportunities to monetize the platform, such as selling ad space to asset management companies and selling APIs to fintechs,” Sreekanth Nadella, CEO of KFintech, told Mint in July.

Police say they have exhausted all avenues of search on a reserve near Brian Laundrie’s home, right, with Gabby Petito (YouTube)

The lawyer representing Gabby Petito’s family has confirmed that the body recovered at Spread Creek in the Bridger-Teton National Forest is that of Ms Petito. The body underwent an autopsy on Tuesday in Teton County, Wyoming. The family’s lawyer said he would make a statement once Ms Petito’s remains returned to their home.

An eyewitness claims to have seen Brian Laundrie “acting weird” in the Spread Creek part of the Bridger-Teton National Forest while on vacation in Wyoming. The woman, Jessica Schultz, informed the FBI of her meeting, which helped them narrow their search area to Spread Creek. Police investigated trail camera footage that potentially captured an image of Brian Laundrie’s hike, but determined there was no connection.

The examination of the remains, which were discovered in a remote area of ​​the Bridger-Teton National Forest in western Wyoming on Sunday, was announced as police continued to search for Ms Petito’s fiance, Mr Laundrie . Investigators called him a “person of interest” in the case.

Officers spent much of Monday searching the family home in Laundrie and were pictured loading cardboard boxes into a pickup truck and towing a silver Ford Mustang. His parents say they haven’t seen their son for over a week.

Police were made aware of a potential sighting of Mr. Laundrie, 23, near Mobile, Alabama, on Monday. They have yet to confirm whether the lead was legitimate.

More than 5,000 people were forced to evacuate after a volcano in La Palma, one of Spain’s Canary Islands, erupted at around 3:15 p.m. local time on Sunday. As the volcano continues to spew lava and ash, live footage from cameras and drones in the area shows the extent of the damage.

The eruption of La Cumbre Vieja over the weekend marks the first of the Canary Islands in 50 years. Although no deaths have been reported, the lava, initially moving at 700 meters per hour, destroyed at least 100 homes.

It was feared that lava could reach the sea Monday evening, triggering toxic gases and reducing visibility at sea. But the flow of molten rock has slowed considerably since then. During a press briefing on Monday, the local emergency coordinator, Miguel Angel Morcuende, explained:

The movement of the lava is much slower than it initially was… There was not much progress during the day.

Meanwhile, the Canary Islands Institute of Volcanology is working tirelessly to obtain key scientific data on the eruption, including measuring sulfur dioxide concentrations as well as the chemical composition of the plume, taking thermal images and the establishment of a geochemical station to monitor chemical and isotopic effects. composition of soil gas.

Sunday’s disaster was preceded by weeks of intense seismic activity in the area, which alerted authorities that an eruption was possible.

Over the past few days, more than 4,200 tremors, known as the “earthquake swarm”, have been recorded on the island, as soil deformation indicated magma bubbling beneath the surface.

Along with the volcano, a controversy also erupted in Spain. As local authorities urge people to stay away from the affected region, Spain’s Tourism Minister Reyes Maroto said in an interview on Monday that the eruption could be a potential tourist attraction.

The island is open. If your hotel is affected, we’ll find another one for you. Take this opportunity to enjoy what nature has given us.

The remarks sparked a backlash, with political opponents lambasting Maroto and pointing out that people were losing their homes in the disaster.

Apple has big ambitions in augmented reality, and the iPhone 13 (not shown) could be part of that plan.

James Martin / CNET

This story is part of Apple event, our comprehensive coverage of the latest Apple news.

If Apple made one thing clear during Tuesday’s session IPhone 13 Launch Eventis that the cameras and processors of these new phones are going to be a big deal. Apple’s speech even included a short film by Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow and cinematographer Greig Fraser that was shot on iPhone 13 Pro show off her new camera tips.

It is obvious that Apple is marketing the iPhone 13 and 13 Pro to photographers and videographers. But the iPhone 13 advancements remind me of how Apple could set the stage for something bigger. This could lay the groundwork for what should be Apple’s next big thing: a augmented or virtual reality headset.

Upgrades like better cameras, more powerful processors, and additional storage options are typical of new phones. But it’s how these additions combine with other iPhone updates from the past two years that suggest Apple is setting up the iPhone to become an augmented reality powerhouse.

The iPhone could one day be the brain of Apple’s AR and VR headset

Rumors have been circulating for years that Apple may be working on smart glasses that deliver augmented and virtual reality experiences. But unlike most Apple products, which typically leak in detail long before release, reports have so far offered a mixed outlook.

Bloomberg reported last January that Apple is developing an all-in-one AR and VR headset for developers that runs on its most powerful chips. This headset would serve as a precursor to a more stylish pair of AR glasses, according to the report.

But a recent story from The Information, published just days before the iPhone event, describes something entirely different. This suggests that Apple’s headset will run on a less powerful chip and therefore will need to connect to a host device such as the iPhone.

If the Information report is correct, the iPhone 13 range certainly seems to be a capable host for this type of portable device. Apple calls the version of its A15 Bionic chip found in the iPhone 13 Pro, which has five graphics processing cores instead of the regular iPhone 13’s four, the fastest chip ever in a smartphone. Apple is offering this phone to photo and video editors, but better graphics also likely mean better performance in AR and VR applications.

Processing power aside, all of Apple’s iPhones also benefit from increased battery life and more storage space, with the Pro becoming the first iPhone to get a 1TB storage option. Again, these are updates that would likely be needed if AR apps became more popular, and Apple certainly seems confident they will be. It makes me think that Apple could make these iPhones sustainable for a scenario where we all use AR or VR apps on our phones almost daily. Or for when the long-talked about Apple headset exists.

The iPhone is gradually becoming better equipped for augmented reality

These upgrades alone don’t suggest anything significant about Apple’s ambitions for future products. But Apple is clearly improving the power of the iPhone Augmented reality experiences that are meant to live on your phone, as we’ve seen in recent years.

Apple positions the camera updates on iPhone 13 – including a new cinematic mode that automatically shifts focus between subjects – ideal for media professionals. And Apple is probably correct in assuming that this is the most meaningful way to see these sophisticated cameras being used in the short term. But I can imagine having cameras that could lock onto subjects faster and more accurately would also be extremely useful for AR applications, although Apple didn’t focus on AR during its event.

In addition to upgrading the iPhone’s cameras, Apple has equipped its gadgets with sensors that give them a much better sense of their surroundings. This is the key for a technology like AR that must accurately detect objects in the real world in order to work.

IPhone 13 Pro Cameras

Better cameras paired with the A15 Bionic chip could make the iPhone 13 powerful enough to accommodate headphones.

The biggest clue came last year when Apple added a lidar scanner to the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max, a sensor that detects depth by measuring the time it takes for light to reflect off an object. Apple hasn’t been subtle about how lidar can improve augmented reality on the iPhone; he highlighted AR as one of the main reasons lidar was built into the iPhone in the first place. I can imagine the iPhone 13 Pro’s improved cameras combined with lidar could allow it to run powerful AR apps.

A year earlier, Apple had also installed an ultra-wide band chip in the iPhone for the first time. The iPhone 11 introduced Apple’s U1 chip, which provides much more accurate location tracking when used indoors compared to GPS. At present, the iPhone’s ultra wideband technology is mainly used to improve AirDrop and to find lost items via Apple AirTag trackers.

Still, this is another example of how the iPhone is becoming more space conscious, and it could have a lot of potential for future AR apps. AirTags are already providing a first indication of how this technology could be used in AR applications.

A feature called Precision Search, for example, displays prompts on your iPhone screen leading you to your lost AirTag. It’s easy to imagine how this could translate into future AR apps that overlay instructions on top of the real world rather than on your iPhone screen.

And if that’s not enough, Apple’s upcoming iOS 15 also comes with features that seem ready for future AR glasses, as my colleague Scott Stein notes.

Did Apple give the iPhone 13 a better camera, more processing power, and longer battery life just for augmented and virtual reality apps? No. These upgrades are useful for all smartphone users, even those who don’t shoot movies on their iPhone and mainly use their device for taking animal photos and reading the news. But when you consider these updates in the context of how the iPhone has evolved over the years, it sure looks like there’s a lot more potential.

SErbest Salih studied photography at Aleppo University, before fleeing Syria with his family in 2014 as Islamic State fighters advanced on his hometown of Kobani. He is now one of some 100,000 refugees living in the historic town of Mardin in south-eastern Turkey, a few kilometers from the Syrian border. After first finding work as a photographer for a German NGO, Salih’s life changed dramatically in 2017 when, as he was walking with a friend through town, he discovered a sprawling community of refugees. living in a cluster of abandoned government buildings in the Kurdish working-class neighborhood. from Istayson.

“It was a place where Turkish Kurds and Syrian Kurds lived as neighbors, but did not communicate,” he said, “They were foreigners who spoke the same language. It was then that I thought of using film photography as a means of integrating the different communities.

  • Image of 13-year-old Ibrahim from Qamishli, Syria. All photographs from I saw the air fly by Sirkhane Darkroom (Mack, 2021), courtesy of the artist and Mack.

Working with Sirkhane, a community organization, and with initial funding from a German aid organization, Welthungerhilfe, he began to organize photography workshops using donated cheap analog cameras. “Digital is easier and faster,” he tells me, “but the analog process teaches children to look more carefully and also to be patient, because they have to take a picture without seeing the result instantly. For them there is something therapeutic and healing about the whole process. “

Salih now runs the Sirkhane Darkroom in Mardin and, since 2019, has traveled to nearby towns and villages with the Sirkhane Caravan, a mobile version of it. Children from the age of seven come to his workshops to learn the traditional techniques of filming on film and the processing of results in a darkroom. “Sometimes they burst out laughing and say, ‘These are cameras from my parents’ time.’ “, he told me. “But, when they start using them, something magical happens. They start to show the world they live in through their own eyes.

  • Image of Sultan, 14, from Nusaybin, Turkey.

The results, like a new book, I saw the air fly, shows, are often surprising. Rather than reflecting the trauma of their displacement, the images tend towards the innocent and the joyful: family portraits, blurry shots of their friends playing, of children jumping, hiding, posing with their friends or with each other. caring for their animals. Throughout, there are more intricate formal compositions that catch the eye: a cluster of hilltop buildings, the irregular geometry of electric wires crisscrossing the sky.

The fact that many images are grainy and monochrome only adds to their resonance: a flock of birds scattered across a gray, overcast sky; the shadow of a child falling on a dilapidated courtyard; a row of raised hands balancing turntables on thin sticks. All human life is here as it is experienced by the children of a makeshift refugee community in Turkey.

Image of Ayshe, 9, from Mardin, Turkey.

  • Image of Ayshe, 9, from Mardin, Turkey.

The book has parallels with that of Wendy Ewald Portraits and dreams: photographs and stories of children from the Appalachianss, also published by Mack, in which she taught hands-on photography to children in a poor rural community with often surprising results. Like this project, I saw the air fly is a testament to the untouched imaginations of the very young, whatever their circumstances, but also to Salih’s faith in the transformative power of analog photography. “When I see a photo that surprises me, which happens all the time,” he says, “I’m proud because I’ve always had great faith in what photography can do. “

As the children progress through the workshops, he tells me, they are given specific subjects to photograph. These can range from everyday (garden, home) to the more socially conscious – child labor, child marriage and, tentatively, gender issues. “A lot of times when we start out, the girls think they can’t be as good as the boys,” he says. “Unfortunately, that’s what the adult world has taught them, but soon they are taking pictures of their lives and experiences. The camera gives them the confidence to do so.

Image of Rojin, 14, from Mardin, Turkey.

  • Image of Rojin, 14, from Mardin, Turkey.

On the Sirkhane website, videos and photographs testify to the wonder children feel in the darkroom as the images they have shot finally appear. But what do local adults think of the project? “At the beginning, many of them send their children to us just to get them out of the house. Then, when they see the results, they are also often surprised by what their children have accomplished.

Salih’s plans to “expand the caravan workshops so we can go to the most affected places” have been on hold since the start of the pandemic and he has had to teach online. “It was difficult,” he says, “because most of the children don’t have smartphones or internet access. We have managed to get some support, but at the moment it is not sustainable. We rely more than ever on fundraising and donating money and used equipment, not just cameras, but also things like darkroom chemicals, which cannot be sent from there. outside of Turkey. It’s very difficult.”

  • Image of Ahmed, 10, from Alhaske, Syria.

The release of I saw the air fly is a singular achievement. It is also, in many ways, a humble book – all the images were chosen by the children themselves, their often low-key charm attesting to the essentially democratic nature of the medium, and its ability to surprise. “People think if you give a camera to a refugee child, the results will be sad,” says Salih, “but instead most of these photographs are about joy. These are small moments of intimate happiness.

All profits from the sale of I saw the air fly will go to the Her Yerde Sanat-Sirkhane charity, which aims to provide “a safe, friendly and welcoming environment” for children caught up in conflict

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – It wasn’t pretty, but the Ohio State No. 9 held on to beat Tulsa 41-20 at Ohio Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The defense allowed over 400 passing yards and battled a below-par Tulsa offense while TreVeyon Henderson broke the Archie Griffin one-game running record by a freshman with 270 yards.

The 21-point difference is certainly misleading after Tulsa moved closer to seven points at the start of the fourth quarter. The Buckeyes got some separation after a touchdown pass to Garrett Wilson followed by a six pick from Cam Martinez.

The Buckeyes played without starting defensive end Zach Harrison and center Harry Miller and lost left guard Thayer Munford who left with a leg injury in the first quarter.

Ohio State is forced to kick on its first record. Tulsa covered 81 yards on 16 plays taking over six minutes, but the Buckeyes are holding the Golden Hurricane to a field goal. Tulsa leads 3-0 with 5:40 left in the first quarter.

Offensive lineman Thayer Munford falls with an injury and is helped on the sidelines where medics attend to him.

Matt Jones enters left guard for injured Munford. Ohio State practice stalls and the Buckeyes are content with a 43-yard basket from Noah Ruggles. Buckeyes drew 3-3 with Tulsa after the first quarter.

Tulsa has another long haul by converting several 3rd downs but settles for another basket. The Buckeyes follow Tulsa 6-3 with 10:48 left in the second quarter.

Ohio State is finally setting up full training. The Buckeyes reclaimed the ball for 64 yards in six plays, capped off by a five-yard touchdown by real freshman TreVeyon Henderson. The Buckeyes lead Tulsa 10-6 with 8:44 left in the second quarter.

Ohio State forces Tulsa to kick for the first time with just under seven minutes left in the first half. Cam Martinez and Denzel Burke had some nice breakouts as senior cornerback Sevyn Banks made his first appearance this season.

CJ Stroud is intercepted by Travon Fuller of Tulsa. Stroud tied to force the throw in double cover instead of checking towards Henderson for a shorter payoff. Tulsa takes over on his own 25-yard line with 4:40 left in the first half.

Ohio State responds by forcing a turnover. Real freshman Denzel Burke offers an interception to give the ball back to the Buckeyes at the Tulsa 33-yard line with 3:50 left in the half. The interception was called off after officials reviewed the play and concluded that the Tulsa receiver caught the ball first before Burke took possession.

The defense finally got their turnover just before half-time when Ronnie Hickman knocked out Brin near midfield as the Golden Hurricane tried to score before half-time. Ohio State leads 13-6 at the break.

TreVeyon Henderson goes wild for a 48-yard touchdown to extend Ohio State’s 20-6 lead early in the third quarter.

Tulsa forces a strip sack and collects the fumble. Golden Hurricane capitalizes and scores on a 21-yard pass from Brin to Cannon Montgomery. The Buckeyes lead 20-13 with less than a minute left in the third quarter.

But Ohio State comes right back and scores on a 52-yard rushing touchdown from Henderson who just broke Archie Griffin’s one-game running record by a freshman with 243 yards and counting.

Tulsa and Ohio State trade touchdowns and the Buckeyes lead 34-20 with a Stroud touchdown to Garrett Wilson. The Buckeyes add up to a six-pick from former quarterback-turned-defensive back Cameron Martinez.

LUMINOUS yellow speed control radars have started to appear along the A449.

The work on installing the cameras on the southbound carriageway has already been completed.

Road work continues to place the cameras on the northbound carriageway between Ombersley and Hartlebury.

The average speed of the drivers will be recorded by the cameras to detect those who exceed 50 mph on the road.

The system is expected to go live in late September, although mobile speed cameras still detect speeding drivers during this time.

If prosecuted for speeding, drivers could face a minimum fine of £ 100 and three penalty points.

They could be banned from driving if they accumulate 12 or more penalty points over a three-year period.

The project is a partnership between West Mercia Police, Worcestershire County Council and speed tech company Jenoptik and was funded by West Mercia Police and the Police Crime Commissioner Road Safety Fund.

Superintendent Gareth Morgan said: “Unfortunately, many families are all too familiar with the devastating consequences that speeding tickets and crashes can cause.

“Reducing the number of people killed or seriously injured on our roads is our priority and reducing the speed at which people move is key. ”

As shootings continue to skyrocket in Portland and homicides peak in more than two decades, Mayor Ted Wheeler on Friday called for more money to allow police to rehire officers who have recently retired to address the office staff shortage.

Wheeler also called for a city-wide expansion of Portland Street Response to reduce the number of calls police must handle. Along with that effort, he said he expected to ask for a significant increase in funding to allow non-emergency calls to be diverted from the 911 emergency dispatch system to another line, the city’s 311 program. .

Additionally, Wheeler said he intends to look for money to set aside to equip officers with body cameras.

Wheeler, who is a police commissioner, and Police Chief Chuck Lovell have estimated that 80 officers would be eligible for retirement and could return to work this year.

The return of retirees ensures that officers can be patrolled the streets or help immediately target gun violence “as well as prevent burnout among our current officers,” Wheeler said.

Wheeler and Lovell’s remarks come just a month before city council is considering budget adjustment proposals this fall. The mayor has yet to provide the exact amount he will seek to increase the police bureau’s budget. He said he expected to know how much money will be available for budget adjustments by the end of this month.

“Last March, when I worked with the Interfaith Peace and Action (Collaborative) and other community leaders to come up with a gun violence reduction plan, I said we had to act then so that we had time to prepare for what seemed like a disaster the summer to come. We lived that summer, ”Wheeler said. “The city tends to have its deadliest year in decades. And while urban gun violence affects cities across the United States, we are not other cities. This is our home and we have to do better here.

The city has recorded 64 homicides so far this year, including three fatal shootings by police. Of these, 46 were the result of shootings.

On Thursday, 886 shootings took place across the city this year, with 283 people killed or wounded by bullets. Police recorded 1,229 shootings in the past 12 months, a significant increase from the 656 shootings reported in the previous 12 months.

The office has been losing officers much faster than it can hire new hires, and this year expects another big wave of retirements.

Since the start of the year, the chief and mayor have requested support for a rehiring program to address the office staff shortage, but council did not approve it in this year’s budget.

The Police Bureau now has 122 sworn officer positions. There are currently 794 sworn-in officers, of which 59 are in training, with an authorized strength of 916.

Hiring new officers has been difficult, with fewer state police base academies offered during the pandemic. The office also lost its three-member recruiting team last year – the chief recruiter resigned and two officers were put back on patrol to fill shifts. Police also reduced the number of investigators tasked with checking candidates’ personal backgrounds to seven from 18, according to police.

So far this year, 40 officers have retired. Last year, 56 retired. In addition, 71 other agents left this year, either by resignation or by failure of their probationary period, according to the office.

During exit interviews, a few retirees said they would have stayed if the office still had a retirement-re-hire program to come back for two to six years. The office eliminated the program last year because it is more expensive to bring back veteran agents who earn more money.

City commissioner Mingus Mapps, who rejected the mayor’s proposal additional funding for the police office earlier this year, is now strongly calling for more police resources and said this week it wants a 20% reduction in gun violence over the next 15 months.

“Pretending gangs don’t exist devalues ​​black lives,” Mapps said in a prepared statement. “33.6% of homicide victims were black males in the past fiscal year, compared to about 3% of the population. At this point, it is fallacious to deny that the Portland Police Office and law enforcement have a critical role to play. “

Wheeler was reluctant to set such a specific shooting reduction target, but said he was committed to reducing shooting in the city through increased enforcement and community outreach and support. “We won’t see the results without the investments and without the strategies at the street level,” he said.

Last year, city council eliminated the police bureau’s gun violence reduction unit, which aimed to proactively target gun violence but criticized for its disproportionate arrests of people of color. The city dissolved the unit without providing an immediate alternative.

In the spring, the mayor approved the creation of a similar team of uniformed officers to identify and prosecute the most frequent suspected shooters – with a new layer of community surveillance in the form of a citizens’ group to track its performance. .

But the police office does not expect the team of 12 officers led by two sergeants to be operational until the end of November.

Few officers had volunteered for the team earlier this year. Some officers said they were unsure of the watchdog group’s expectations and feared they would not gain support from the city, Deputy Chief Jami Resch said.

Instead, the police office decided to identify the team’s supervisors first, appointing Acting Lt. Ken Duilio to oversee the new team, under the command of Captain James Crooker and Cmdr. Art Nakamura.

Five officers have now applied for the team’s two sergeant positions. Police and two members of the community watch group will interview the five next Tuesday, and selections are expected by the end of next week. The community watch group and police then plan to release a new job description for officers on the new team in late September.

Lovell said he chose not to assign or appoint officers to the new team because he wanted to allow for the community group’s contribution in light of past experiences with the now defunct gangs and anti-gang teams. reduction of gun violence.

“We take public safety seriously in the city. He is painful to see community members injured and gunshot wounds on our streets, and we are doing everything we can to get the targeted response team up and running, ”said Lovell. “We are working with the resources we have. We’re looking for ways to add more, and we really want people to feel safe and able to come out in the community, and not worry about gun violence.

He added that police have recovered 800 guns so far this year. Last year, the office pulled 866 guns off the streets.

The expansion of Portland Street Response is expected to help reduce the number of low-priority calls that Portland police must answer, accounting for about 40% of the office’s calls, according to police. Street Response sends a paramedic and social worker to people experiencing homelessness or mental health crisis if there are no weapons involved in the call. It was launched in February, limited to the Lents district.

Meanwhile, the city faces complaints of 911 callers who sit on hold for minutes, instead of seconds, before their emergency calls are answered.

In a shooting at a Pearl District restaurant earlier this month, people who called 911 to report the shooting and other emergencies within the next half hour waited an average of more than 7, 5 minutes before a dispatcher responds, well above the national picking standard. up to 911 calls in 15 to 20 seconds.

Bob Cozzie, director of the city’s Emergency Communications Office, said a 20-45% increase, depending on the week, in the volume of 911 calls received is not sustainable. He said he would like to see all non-emergency calls transferred to program line 311, but program staff only answer the line on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The 311 system is designed to provide callers with a single point of contact for finding information on municipal and government services.

“We need relief by next summer or we’ll burn people so drastically,” Cozzie said of his staff.

Michelle Kunec-North, the 311 program manager, told city officials earlier this week that about 60,000 of the 500,000 non-urgent calls could be absorbed by line 311 by the end of the fiscal year, ie next June. She said the 311 program would need at least 10 to 15 additional employees to handle all non-emergency calls 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Regarding body cameras, the city is negotiating a policy with the police union for the use of cameras that would ensure officers cannot see the footage until their initial investigation report or interview with a detective if they use lethal force, the mayor said.

The US Department of Justice has called on the city to take this step to address its failure to meet the terms of a 2014 settlement agreement on the use of force, police training and oversight.
