AWC-supported body worn cameras bill passes out of committee

SB 6408 concerns law enforcement body worn cameras, including policies related to their use and disclosure exemptions under the Public Records 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 passed out of its policy committee before the cutoff on Friday, February 2. It has until Valentine’s Day to be voted out of the Senate or else it will die.
