Under current North Carolina law, dashboard cameras are considered public record, making such footage subject to open records requests.

But as more officers have become outfitted with body cameras, particularly following the heightened scrutiny surrounding officer-involved shootings, police chiefs lacked a specific law that addressed how to best release footage to citizens. So they made rules on a department-by-department basis.

With the new law, both types of videos would no longer be considered part of the public record. As a result, police departments would have more discretion as to whether they release the videos. The law has the full support of the North Carolina Sheriffs' Association.


Videos released by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department of the fatal encounter between officers and Keith Lamont Scott could be the last such footage from North Carolina.

Introduction

BRIEF BIO

In 2014, Maliq made her successful debut as the 1 Woman Band for her Spring Tour, and received media attention as the 1 Woman Band performance artist to be featured in coverage of the Columbus Arts Festival for Fox28’s Good Day Columbus (Ohio).  2016 Chaquis and her 1 Woman Band made their way to  ABC4’s Low Country Live Charleston, SC and CBS7's Your Carolina- Greenville, SC. Chaquis’ 1 Woman Band compliments her cozy sound by giving the audience a full band experience you’ll never forget.

EXTENDED BIO

Singer, Songwriter, 1 Woman Band, and producer are just some of the labels to describe Chaquis Maliq (Shuh-Kees Mah-Leek). Representing the new breed of women artists taking ownership of their musical paths by leading the songwriting and production of their musical creations, Chaquis Maliq is redefining the playing field as a multi-talented creator.

But before this San Francisco Native could even fathom engineering and producing her first two albums, The “Demonstration Vol. I” and “Veracity”; Chaquis was first a poet and theatrical spoken word artist, with piano playing background. It wasn’t until Chaquis relocated to the DMV (District of Columbia, Maryland,Virginia), that all her musical avenues dispersed from her heart and mind.

Already inspired by Soul, Funk, Gospel, Jazz, and Alternative music, Chaquis always admired guitar players. In 2011 Chaquis discovered a new love, which created her warm melodic, sweet blues,and honey jazz sound. The credit goes to her classical acoustic guitar aka Mr. Maliq. Entering this new chapter of her acoustic urban folk journey, Chaquis released her first guitar project, “Harmonies of Me,”  in Summer 2013. Although it’s a new beginning for Maliq, she still intends to create music to uplift her listeners and keep them encouraged.  

TEACHING & MENTORING

With her brightening desire to give back to those who may not have access to learning music, Chaquis has found ways to accomplish granting access to youth and young adults since 2009. Maliq started out with mentoring and songwriting with Washington DC’s Young Women Drumming Empowerment Project (YWDEP).This led to Chaquis working with teens and young adults while teaching them self-motivation and entrepreneurship, regardless of their outlook on music. These same teachings have been passed on to her music students and youth of Girls Rock.   

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS

Highlights in her burgeoning career includes 2015 Indi.com Judge’s Pick for R & B Challenge, 2012 RAW Artist Baltimore Musician of the Year Nomination, her first place award in 2008 for vocal excellence in a showcase sponsored by the National Association for Black Female Executives in Music and Entertainment (NABFEME).2016 Chaquis and her 1 Woman Band made their way to  ABC4’s Low Country Live Charleston, SCAnd in 2014 she received media attention as the 1 Woman Band performance artist to be featured in coverage of the Columbus Arts Festival for Fox28’s Good Day Columbus (Ohio). Maliq also performed at Ohio State Fair,  MusikFest & ArtsQuest-Bethlehem - Haverford Music Festival, PA, The FAF-Woodbury NJ, Berry College World Music Festival-Rome, GA, LadyBug Music Festival-Wilmington, DE, FestAFrica USA - Silver Spring, MD, Columbia Festival of the Arts - Columbia, MD, North Charleston Harvest Festival, The National Cherry Blossom Festival-Washington D.C., the Black Family Reunion-Washington D.C., Takoma Park Folk Festival-MD, ArtWalk-Jacksonville, FL, the International  Soul Summit in Atlanta, GA and more.
