North Carolina Law Denying Public Access to Police Body Camera Footage Causes Criticism

North Carolina Law Denying Public Access to Police Body Camera Footage Causes CriticismA new law signed by North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory on Monday that denies public access to police body camera and dashcam footage is being criticized by civil rights activists as opposing the purpose of the community-funded technology. The law, formally known as House Bill 972, is described as “an act to provide that body-worn camera and dashboard camera recordings are not public records” and legislation to provide “transparency between our law enforcement officers and citizens” by the North Carolina General Assembly. “We are initiating a necessary balance to gain public trust, while also respecting the rights of our public safety of officers,” McCrory said in a press conference on Monday.
