The Durham Police Department is drafting a body-cam policy for the police force. However, the most recent draft is problematic, for it does not make the footage available to the public. The draft classifies all body-cam footage as being a part of a criminal investigation, essentially giving the police chief the right to determine what is released to the public. Many Durham citizens are challenging this drafted policy and hope for more access to body-cam footage.
