SALT LAKE CITY — In an abundance of caution, Salt Lake City Police Department will not be providing data to Banjo. We are continuing to review the product that they offer. As a department, we are committed to protecting civil liberties while ensuring appropriate law enforcement protection to the community. At this time, SLCPD has discontinued its initial review of the product.
“As law enforcement, we are hopeful for the assistance that a product like Banjo offers. But we do take personal privacy very seriously. The founding principles of this country include the rights of the individual and their privacy. Because of this we want to make sure we fully vet any product before sharing their information,” said SLCPD Chief Mike Brown.
