Jay Z Reportedly Begins Work On Barneys Advisory Council

(AllHipHop News) When Jay Z announced that he was moving forward with his Barneys collection, he also revealed that he will take a leadership position on a panel reviewing racial profiling at the retailer. According to a Women’s World Daily report, the Brooklyn mogul started his work with the advisory council and some changes to Barneys’ policies as they relate to interactions with the NYPD have been made.

A Barneys source told WWD that Jay Z had a role in the formation of the council and assisted in the new procedures created. The publication also obtained an internal Barneys memo issued to security staff that revealed the store will begin logging and recording police officers who use its security room’s closed-circuit televisions. Officers will now also be required to give a description and reason for any person they wish to place under surveillance.

“We recognize the need to cooperate with the NYPD as they address criminal activity in our city and within our locations. However, those needs must be balanced with ensuring that the rights of individuals are respected at all times,” stated the memo.

Despite the controversy surrounding the accusations of racial profiling Jay’s Barneys collection appears to be selling extremely well. According to Sandra Rose the exclusive apparel is nearly sold out.
