Rochester City Council will hold a public meeting at 6 p.m. on Monday, November 23, on the pending police body-camera program. Meetings will be held throughout November and one on December 3.

Tonight's meeting is at the Edgerton center, 41 Backus Street

The purpose of the meetings is to get public input on the pending program. Participants will break off into tabletop work sessions where they will consider: When will the cameras be on and off? Can citizens opt-out of being recorded? Who can see the footage? And, how long will the footage be saved?

There will also be a display of different kinds of body cameras.

The Rochester People’s Climate Coalition will hold a march through downtown Rochester on November 29, the day before crucial United Nations climate treaty talks begin in Paris. The march starts at 1 p.m. at St. Luke and St. Simon Cyrene Episcopal Church, 17 South Fitzhugh Street.

Groups in dozens of cities across the world are holding similar marches that day. They want to show the world leaders gathered in Paris that the people they represent support meaningful international action on climate change.

At the Paris summit, world leaders will discuss goals for carbon emissions reductions, as well as programs to help developing nations cope with the effects of climate change. The summit starts on November 30. BY JEREMY MOULE
