GREENSBORO, NC (November 30, 2018) – Upon the request of Greensboro Police Chief Wayne Scott, Guilford County Superior Court Judge Susan Bray ruled he may release the body-worn camera footage of the Greensboro Police Department’s involvement with Marcus Deon Smith on September 8, 2018.

The City continues to review the initial findings of the Medical Examiner’s report. Chief Scott has elected to modify the application of the RIPP Hobble device used to restrain individuals, while police continue to review the use of this method of restraint.

The compilation of the body-worn camera footage with narration from Chief Scott is available on the City of Greensboro’s website<www.greensboro-nc.gov/departments/police/gpd-cases/-fsiteid-1>. The remaining body-worn camera footage from all involved officers will be added to the website as it’s available. Greensboro City Council members have viewed the footage in small groups.
