Bill Would Limit Use of Body Camera Footage


Balancing transparency and privacy is at the core of a bill to limit use of body camera footage. State Representative Niraj Antani, of Miamisburg, introduced the bill pertaining to police-worn body cameras.

"If it's a public record, all of a sudden, every criminal or creep can now see where you keep your gun, where your wife keeps her jewelry, and where your daughter sleeps," said Antani, "and that is a severe invasion of privacy."

Antani said the bill establishes four instances in which a police body camera video cannot be released: if it's confidential investigatory record, a video in a private home, a private business, or has a sex crime victim's likeness..
