HARRISBURG – Legislation will be introduced to provide more accountability when it comes to police videos and recording of law enforcement in PA. Act 22 of 2017 approved the use of body cameras by law enforcement. The proposal would return all non-body camera police video to the purview of the Right to Know Law, as was the case before Act 22; it would increase the amount of time to request body camera footage from 60 to 180 days; and increase the ways a person may request such footage and boost response time for such requests. It also increases appeal rights by providing for review by the Office of Open Records; protects the right of citizens to record police officers who are conducting official business without interference from them; and codify that citizens cannot violate the law or interfere with police responsibilities when making a recording. The bill would not make any changes to the investigative exemption related to body camera footage established by Act 22.
