Model Police Policy Body-Worn Cameras: An Aid for Prosecutors
California District Attorneys Association (2016)
This model policy is created as a guide to prosecutors who are working with law enforcement agencies to implement body-worn cameras. The policy includes “Use Notes,” which present and consider viable alternative policies that may exist for a particular issue. Also accompanying the model policy is a checklist outlining the many issues that should be addressed in a body worn camera policy. This model evolved from a policy originally created by a subcommittee of the CDAA Foundation, headed by David Angel of the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office. Subcommittee members include Michael Cabral (Riverside County District Attorney’s Office), Damon Mosler (San Diego County District Attorney’s Office), and Shawn Randolph (Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office), with significant contributions from Julie Selsberg (past Chair of the Colorado Prosecutors’ Best Practices Committee) and Kristine Hamann (Executive Director and Founder of Prosecutors’ Center for Excellence).
