AWC-supported body cameras bill has a hearing this week

SB 6408 concerns law enforcement body worn cameras, including policies related to their use and disclosure exemptions under the Public Record Act. The bill makes minimal changes to the current body worn camera statutes but, importantly, does remove the sunset clauses which would ensure that these statutes continue to remain in law. The bill came out of a two-year-long task force which issued a report and set of recommendations in December.

SB 6408 has a public hearing in the Senate Law & Justice Committee on Monday, January 29 at 10 am and is scheduled for executive session on Thursday, February 1 at 10 am.

AWC will testify in support of the bill. Contact Logan Bahr or Shannon McClelland with any questions or concerns.
