Minneapolis Park Police has released new body cam officer footage from the day George Floyd was detained.

The video is heavily redacted with little audio and is filmed after Mr Floyd was already detained by officers.

The officer with the body cam is monitoring a vehicle opposite to where Mr Floyd was arrested.

Minneapolis Park Police says he not involved with the actions that led to Mr Floyd’s death.

“Based on a review of the body worn camera footage, which is being released to demonstrate the vantage point of the Park Police officer, the Park Police officer was not in a location to witness or intervene in the Minneapolis Police Department (MPD) incident,” the Minneapolis Park Police said in a statement.
