Body Cameras: Legal and Practical Implications

Date: Friday, June 3, 2016 8:30 AM to 12:00 PM
Venue:   Roseville, MN United States  Get Directions
Total Price: $45.00

Deadline to Register: May 30, 2016

The Burnsville Police Department was the first in Minnesota to require its officers to wear body cameras in 2010.  Many officers who have used the cameras believe they capture valuable evidence, but privacy considerations have been raised by members of the community.  In addition, use of this technology is complicated by Data Practices and civil liability considerations.  We have assembled an exceptional panel of speakers to address the rollout of body cameras, as their use is implemented by various police jurisdictions throughout the state, as well as some of the primary legal issues of interest to public lawyers resulting from the use of body cameras.  What statewide legislative proposals have been advanced in this year’s legislative session?  What proposals are anticipated next year?  What have police departments confronted in the implementation of body cameras?  What are the concerns of the community?  How do the state’s Data Practices laws impact this technology?  What sorts of civil liability issues have arisen or are anticipated as the use of body cameras becomes more common?

After the CLE, the Public Law Section will hold their Annual Meeting & awards luncheon. All members are welcome.
