City Releases Body Camera Footage from
June 1, 2021 Call for Service
Annapolis, MD (March 9, 2023) – In the aftermath of the Office of the State’s Attorney finalizing review in the matter of the death of Renardo Green, the City of Annapolis is releasing redacted Annapolis Police body worn camera footage from the June 1, 2021 call for service.
In mid-February, the State’s Attorney determined that Mr. Green’s death was not criminal in nature. As a result of the review, the State’s Attorney will not seek nor request a law enforcement agency to seek any charges related to Mr. Green’s death.
The Office of the State’s Attorney is, however, pursuing one criminal charge involving Annapolis Fire Department personnel. That charge is unrelated to Mr. Green’s death.
“It is our goal that accountability be a priority in our public safety team’s interactions with residents. At the request of the State’s Attorney, we held off on releasing footage during the investigative phase. Now that the investigation is complete, we want to be as transparent as possible and we are releasing the footage to both Mr. Green’s family and the public,” said Mayor Gavin Buckley. “I know our emergency response personnel are dedicated professionals who work to deliver quality care to residents. I believe the video footage demonstrates this and provides the full context of the emergency response. I also want to acknowledge the pain experienced by Mr. Green’s family and friends in the wake of these tragic circumstances and offer them my sincere condolences.”

Please note that the videos have been redacted to protect the privacy of individuals not involved in Mr. Green’s emergency care.
