Yes. However, in locations where individuals have a reasonable expectation of privacy, such as a residence, individuals may request that an officer not record them. Officers will evaluate each situation and when an officer deems it appropriate, may honor the individual’s request.
It depends on the situation. Individuals may request that an officer not record them. Officers will evaluate each situation and when an officer deems it appropriate, may honor the individual’s request.
Generally, no. Our primary use of the cameras will be in situations when officers are responding to calls for service and during law enforcement-related activities, such as traffic stops, arrests, searches, interviews, and pursuits.
Requests for video are subject to the Missouri Sunshine Law. Additionally, one of the most critical issues for people interacting with police is privacy. People often need to seek police assistance when they are going through difficult personal challenges. Certain groups of citizens have strong specific privacy protections – particularly juveniles. Victims also have privacy protections in the law.

While BWCs can be a useful tool and can provide a unique perspective on police encounters, there are limitations:
Yes, it is. You can view our policy HERE.
All members of the police department, with the exception of the Executive Command Staff, will be issued BWCs.
23 BWCs will be actively deployed when the program is fully implemented.
Our BWC Policy contains a detailed list of situations for which a BWC should be activated. Essentially, an officer shall continuously record any incident in which an officer has reasonable suspicion or probable cause that a crime has occurred.
Much of the work an officer completes throughout a shift can be considered administrative in nature (report writing, paperwork, etc). There are also times during an officer’s shift where there may be an expectation of privacy. Additionally, requiring the continuous recording of an entire 12-hour shift would put an unnecessary strain on system resources (e.g., storage space, video management).
BWC video will be stored on a server located within the police department.
All BWC recordings not scheduled for court proceedings, litigation holds, active investigations or other departmental uses shall be maintained for a minimum 30 days in accordance with the Missouri Police Clerks Records Retention Schedule (PDF).
Officers are not obligated to announce if they have activated their BWC.
This depends on the situation. There may be times when an individual may not wish to be recorded, especially in locations where they may have an expectation of privacy (such as a residence). If the officer feels that stopping the recording will not in any way hamper the investigation, then the officer may choose to turn off the BWC; However, officers are not obligated to stop the recording of incidents involving an investigation, lawful search, arrest or other circumstances that clearly dictate that continued recording is necessary.

According to the Missouri Open Records Law, better known as the "Sunshine Law," certain information must be released by the department to the public, while other information is prohibited from being released.
An Incident Report, which is defined in the Sunshine Law as "a record of a law enforcement agency consisting of the date, time, specific location, name of the victim and immediate facts and circumstances surrounding the initial report of a crime or incident, including any logs of reported crimes, accidents and complaints maintained by that agency" may be obtained by any member of the public.
An Investigative Report, which is defined in the Sunshine Law as "a record, other than an arrest or incident report, prepared by personnel of a law enforcement agency, inquiring into a crime or suspected crime, either in response to an incident report or in response to evidence developed by law enforcement officers in the course of their duties" may only be obtained by an "interested party" or under other special circumstances.
