PORAC OPPOSITION LETTER – AB 66 (WEBER)

April 08, 2015

In a letter to Hon. Shirley Weber, California State Assemblymember, PORAC states its position and recommendations on best practices the Legislature ought to consider when writing statutes regarding the use of body-worn camera. PORAC fully supports body-worn cameras to be implemented and used responsibly. However, PORAC also believes that AB 66 will act as a direct deterrent to law enforcement agencies implementing or continuing the use of these devices. If passed as written, PORAC will advise their members to oppose the use of body-worn cameras by their agencies.
