Civil rights group: Police failing to develop bodycam policies

"About a third of all departments do not make their policies public and readily available on the department's websites. And according to Harlan Yu, a technologist at Upturn, every department examined allows its officers to watch video of an incident before filing a report, giving officers "an undue advantage over other witnesses in a court of law."

"Our goal is to help departments improve their policies, by bringing attention to areas where policy improvements can be made, and by highlighting promising policy language from around the country," Yu concluded."
