The Minneapolis Police Department isn't tracking whether all its officers are routinely activating their body cameras, despite a directive to do so following the fatal police shooting of an Australian woman.

Two officers failed to record their encounter with Justine Ruszcyk Damond in July. She'd summoned police to investigate a possible sexual assault near her home when one of the responding officers fatally shot her.
