SF 498 is a bill that regulates the use of body cameras or portable recording systems worn by law enforcement officers. This bill does not balance privacy rights of individuals with the need for police accountability and transparency.
This bill tips the scales in favor of police. It gives the police unlimited access to the videos and severely restricts public access. It also fails to prohibit police from turning the cameras on and off whenever they want.
Take action today! Stop SF 498 from passing the House and tell Governor Dayton to veto the bill if it reaches his desk.
