Body Worn Video Steering Group
From the early beginnings of body worn video in the early 2000’s the second decade of this century has seen a drive towards smarter, intelligent policing by using modern technology. Inevitably this has brought to light issues surrounding what actually happens with the footage once it is stored.
A local Saratosa civil liberties activist is suing the city and Sarasota Police Chief Bernadette DiPino over the high cost of obtaining video from new police body cameras.
Body worn video cameras are being increasingly called upon across the United States. Several states have introduced laws which require the use of these cameras, including California.
