IN Lawmakers Consider Updated Body Camera Bill_65005204-159532

The fate of legislation in Indiana pertaining to police dashcam and body camera video will come down to the final day of the session Thursday.

The bill would regulate public access to police recordings such as an officer’s body camera footage.

As it stands now, anyone can request a copy of video and the police agency has the right to refuse.

But if a person can appeal to a judge who has 30 days to hear the case, law enforcement would have to prove why it should not be released.

The bill has to clear two more votes Thursday in order to go the governor’s desk for consideration.
