Are body cameras mandatory in the US?
Seven states now mandate the statewide use of body-worn cameras by law enforcement officers. Those states are Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland, New Jersey, New Mexico and South Carolina. The body-camera laws in all those states except South Carolina were put in place within the last year.Apr 30, 2021
Police officers must now keep a body camera turned on for the duration of an investigation. Police chokeholds are also banned. Hundreds of new laws go into effect today, many of them unknown to most Texans.Sep 1, 2021
Hundreds of new laws go into effect today, many of them unknown to most Texans.
University of Houston political science professor Brandon Rottinghaus joined Texas Standard to talk about a handful of laws that might not have been in the spotlight during the recent regular legislative session, but could still have big impacts.
Police Body Cameras
Law enforcement officers who wear body cameras as part of their normal job duties are now required to have their cameras turned on for the duration of an investigation. House Bill 929, also known as the Botham Jean Act, came about after Jean, a Dallas man, was murdered by off-duty police officer Amber Guyger in his home.
Chokeholds by law enforcement officers are now banned in Texas. A chokehold is when an officer puts pressure on a person’s neck, throat or torso in a way that might impede breathing of bloodflow. Senate Bill 69 is in response to the death of George Floyd, who was murdered from being held in a chokehold for over 9 minutes by former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin.
Rottinghaus says both the chokehold and body camera laws had bipartisan support, despite some tough negotiations during the regular legislative session. A contingent of Texas Democrats and Republicans are pushing for “fundamental change” in policing and incarceration, he says.
