How do they work in a routine stop? Is a cop allowed to go back and look at it during the arrest? How soon could an attorney get his hands on them? Are they available for the public to view?

Actually, they are supposed to be downloaded after each shift, so they can see what happened during that shift.

Also, a camera can record audio thats being spoken by the suspects while they are in the car! Most people dont know that, but the Officer can hear whats going on...because when I was in the back, with my Son, (he just wrecked our car), that officer came back and started asking questions that I asked my Son, and said he could hear us...Now THATS BIG BROTHER LOL!

A Police Officer can not alter the video recordings in any way. Its time stamped. So, if any time is missing, there will be an inquiry as to where and why that camera was stopped. Usually a police officer will be put on probation if such an occurance should happen.

In a criminal case or some court cases, especially involving accidents, your lawyer can request a copy of the camera. Sometimes, they are provided to the Media if they are trying to find a certain individual who may have hurt or killed and officer and it was caught on that video camera.
Police chase are always brought into the courtroom, so that the jury will know what it took to apprehend he individual, and most times it shows the individual being 'taken down'.

I dont think they will just release it to the general public, unless you have a specific reason, then you may have to file a Freedom of Information Act with the Court to obtain a file copy.

Just my opinion...

May the LORD Bless each of you.

I wish you well...

Jesse

Default police video

Can a prosecutor have a police vehicle video suppressed in a case that shows the officer actions do not match his report?
