The Austin Police Department said it will delay releasing the videos that show incidents in which protesters were critically injured until after the 60-day time frame usually required by policy.
"In consultation with the Travis County District Attorney's Office, the videos related to the critical incidents from the recent protest-related uses of force will not be released during the initial 60-day timeframe because doing so could potentially impact the integrity of the ongoing criminal investigations into the incidents." the APD said in a statement.
