Police Body Camera Law Considered

KSAL StaffJanuary 29, 2015

Kansas police officers would be required to wear body cameras under a bill being considered by a state Senate panel.

The Senate Corrections and Juvenile Justice Committee will hear a bill Thursday that would require police officers to wear body cameras and continually record their activities and interactions.

Any portions of video that led to an arrest or showed the use of force would be required to be stored for three years. Police also would be required to save video showing incidents that were the subject of official complaints.

Several public figures have called for such legislation to be introduced following the police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, in August.
