If a request to review body-worn camera video footage is denied, an individual may submit a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for additional information or a redacted version of the video.
In order to ensure that the video has been uploaded into the MPD storage database, the individual must wait at least 48 hours after an incident before filing the request.
If Your Request to View a Video Is Denied
In the interest of protecting the privacy rights of other individuals captured on body-worn camera video footage, there are instances in which a viewing may be denied in full, or content within the footage redacted (blurred). If your request to view a video is denied, you may submit a FOIA request.
