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.



Several protesters were seriously injured during the protests against police violence in May and June. The incidents led to some policy changes, such as the ban on using "less lethal" bean bag ammunition in crowd situations.

Five officers were placed on administrative leave over the incidents.
