ACLU Approves Las Vegas PD's Body Camera Policy

September 21, 2015  | 

The Las Vegas Metro police policy of releasing body camera footage is "heading in the right direction," according to the American Civil Liberties Union.

Chad Marlow, advocacy and policy counsel for the ACLU, said that Metro PD's policy, which will make most body camera footage readily available to the public, appears to be a balance between transparency and privacy.

Metro says they won't charge for the viewing but will charge $12 per 15 minutes of work for copies of video that requires redaction to protect the privacy of someone in the video, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Since when does LE need the aclu approval for anything?

I really like how the aclu gives their approval over what LE does with evidence. Better yet, let us release everything that anyone wants, specific only to a specific incident. They can do that by simply giving it to the news media. Wonder how long that would take to become a problem for lawyers and the media. Just think, no more half videos of incidents where the police try their best to resolve it but people like the black lives matters and black panthers instigate it and refuse lawful commands.

Who cares what the ACLU thinks.

John retired IA PD @ 9/22/2015 11:01 AM

So the ACLU is now needed to approve police policy???? Are you kidding me?? Sooner or later some incident will be filmed on an officers body cam, and released to the public that the ACLU does not like. What happens then? Will they be permitted to censor was is released?

Since when do we care what the aclu think. They're all full of shit!

Since when does the ACLFU have any say in Law Enforcement Policy. When are the Chiefs of Police going to stand up for their personnel and discipline them when they have done something wrong. ACLFU has no business in LE
