Follow Up to Body-Worn Camera Records Hangout

On February 8, the Records Management Section was pleased to host a Hangout with Snowden Becker of the UCLA Department of Information Studies to discuss law enforcement body-worn camera footage and recordings.

If you missed the Hangout, you can watch the recorded version here. In addition, Snowden prepared some additional readings on her website.

We had record turnout for this Hangout, and time for some excellent questions from viewers about exemptions from public records laws, transfer of recordings from devices to repositories, the role of bystander video, how vendors handle records, and differences between public and law enforcement perspectives on video recordings.

This topic is being addressed elsewhere within SAA; recently the Issues and Advocacy Section addressed the topic on their blog, and the Committee on Public Policy is currently  circulating a draft to selected SAA sections in order to prepare an issue brief on body camera footage.
