Public Is Entitled To See Police Body Cam Footage, Ruling From New York Appeals Court States

Published

on

NEW YORK — A New York appeals court has ruled that police body camera footage is subject to public disclosure under state law.

An Appellate Division panel said Tuesday that the footage doesn’t constitute a personnel record and therefore isn’t covered by a law keeping such records secret.

New York City Police Commissioner James O’Neill called the ruling important for transparency.

The Associated Press and other media outlets had filed briefs arguing the footage is vital to police accountability.

The city’s largest police union fought its release, citing privacy and safety concerns. An email seeking comment was sent to the Police Benevolent Association.

The NYPD released its first body camera footage of a fatal shooting in September 2017. The appeals court halted the release of footage in July while it considered the matter.
