“I found it prudent to release the body camera footage of the event that occurred on December 28, 2020 in a parking lot in the Town of Ulster, as this event has already garnered community attention,” said Sheriff Juan Figueroa. “Encounters with law enforcement can be unpredictable, and although this is not to say one way or the other that anyone is at fault, this will at least shed light on the event as it occurred in real time.Like all technology, devices such as body cameras, cell phones and similar devices are machines with limitations. This complaint remains under investigation.”
