Body Cams: New Law And Effectiveness Of Cameras
The Keith Scott shooting has put new emphasis on police body and dash cams. CMPD has been criticized for being slow to release footage of this latest incident. Over the weekend, citizen access to that footage became even more difficult as a new law went into effect requiring a court order. Some, including our mayor, want the legislature to repeal that law. How likely is that? And how is this footage being used elsewhere?
