Two bills are working their ways through the state legislature that obstruct the public’s right to know pertinent details about their local and state police forces. House Bill 27 would make it a misdemeanor to reveal the name of an officer involved in a shooting or arrest that resulted in injury or death. Senate Bill 560, meanwhile, would make it far more difficult for the public to have access to video and audio recordings captured by an officer’s bodycam. Further, it would not require an officer to notify a citizen that they are being recorded, and would allow recordings to be made inside one’s home.
