Kansas House narrows police body camera legislation


The Kansas House on Thursday voted to approve a narrowly written bill that would make public police body camera footage in limited situations.

The House bill would make the video available when it’s requested by the person in the recording, a parent or guardian of someone under 18 who was recorded or their attorney.

The recording also could be requested by a spouse or an administrator for someone who is dead.             

The recording must be made available in 20 days.

The bill, which will be up for final approval Thursday, doesn’t mandate that the footage be made available . . .
