- District 28
Existing law requires law enforcement agencies, departments, or entities to consider specified best practices regarding the downloading and storage of body-worn camera data, including prohibiting agency personnel from uploading recorded data onto public and social media internet websites, when establishing policies and procedures for the implementation and operation of a body-worn camera system. This bill would prohibit, except as specified, a police department or sheriff's office from sharing, on social media, booking photos of an individual arrested on suspicion of committing a nonviolent crime, as defined. The bill would require a police department or sheriff's office that shares photos or the identity of any arrested individual on social media to remove the information from its social media page if the individual's record has been sealed, the individual's conviction has been dismissed, expunged, pardoned, or eradicated pursuant to law, the individual has been issued a certificate of rehabilitation, or the individual is found not guilty of committing the crime for which they were arrested.
