New Laws Possible Over Police Body Cam Footage

Some new laws may soon be coming to Arizona regarding police body camera footage. The Attorney General's Office has found that a Phoenix Police Department policy does not violate officers' privacy rights.  

The policy is called the "Critical Incident Transparency Protocol" which provides guidelines for the release of information following an officer involved shooting.   

The opinion was released Monday after Representative Jay Lawrence from Scottsdale wanted the AG's office to investigate.  

Officials with the police union tell the AZ Capital Times they may need to look at the possibility of proposing legislation that will address the issue of releasing personal data after critical incidents.
