According to the News & Observer, Raleigh City Council approved the use of body cameras on Raleigh Police officers. Police officers will begin wearing the cameras sometime in Spring 2018.
However, it is unclear who will have access to the video footage. Currently, officers use dash cams, and footage is generally turned over to defendants in many criminal matters, such as DWIs. This footage often can help or hurt a defendant.
If you have a DWI or traffic matter pending in Raleigh, contact Guirguis Law at (919) 832-0500 for more information about how we can help.
