Model act for use of body cameras


The International Municipal Lawyers Association recently developed a Model Act for regulating the use of body cameras by law enforcement officers. The Model attempts to implement appropriate measure to "deal with body cameras in conjunction with public record laws, wiretapping laws, and the costs associated with storing, retrieving and redacting" camera footage. Cities can look to the Model Act, but should also consider Missouri-specific laws, including Sunshine Law, when enacting regulations related to body cameras.
