<![CDATA[Today the National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC), as part of a coalition of dozens of civil rights, media justice, and privacy groups, signed-on to the Civil Rights Principles on Body Worn Cameras. The principles, which pertain to mobile cameras operated by law enforcement personnel, urge departments to (1) develop camera policies in public; (2) commit to a set of narrow and well-defined purposes for how footage should be used; (3) specify clear operational policies for recording, retention, and access; (4) make the footage available to promote accountability while also protecting privacy; and (5) preserve the independent evidentiary value of officer reports by requiring officers to file reports before viewing footage.]]>
National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC) is a woman-led 501(c)(3) non-profit civil and human rights organization that was founded to eliminate hate, discrimination, and racism toward the Latino communities.
