As police departments around the country increasingly use body cameras, many questions arise about access to these video records under freedom of information laws and how journalists can use the videos ethically.
On April 8, the New England First Amendment Coalition will conduct a panel discussion of issues related to the use of body cameras at the Making CONNections journalism conference at Southern Connecticut State University in New Haven, Conn. Titled “Caught on Camera: The FOI Fallout from Police Cameras,” the panel will begin at 3:15 p.m. at the Adanti Student Center. For registration information, visit the conference website.
