The end- and the beginning- of police body-worn cameras

Pennsylvania Senate Bill 560 is now Act 22 of 2017, loosening rules around police use of cameras. With the legislation signed, more police departments in Pennsylvania could increase their use of cameras, including body-worn cameras. ACLU-PA staffers Elizabeth Randol, Matt Stroud, and Andy Hoover discuss the implications. And check out Matt’s recent look at how states are handling the proliferation of police-produced video, “Police body camera footage is becoming a state secret.”
