    In some states it seems that video recorded from LEO's dashboard cameras are not subject to review or release from public inquiry.

    How does this work with California's laws? The guidelines of submitting a PRAR don't seem to preclude the possibility of obtaining such footage. I'm sure that the argument for denial could be made from the public office that such a request would be rejected because it relates to an investigation, or because it would be too costly or difficult to copy, or because its not covered by some statute?



    I don't know, but curiosity, abounds.

    From my understanding, if it is kept, it is public record.

    Also from my understanding, dash cams are fairly uncommon, and departments that have them don't save tapes unless they want to use them as evidence. Otherwise they are commonly deleted/reused frequently.

    So, it's very unlikely the records will exist by the time of your PRAR, and if they do, it's because they're part of an investigation.
