Smile, You're on Camera: The Legal Implications of Technology Use for Law Enforcement

October 21, 2015

Recently, the use of police force has become a very relevant issue throughout the United States. Technology often comes into play as dash cams, body cams, and bystander videos are able to capture some of the alleged misconduct. What are the legal implications of these videos? Are they admissible as evidence in the court room? How is technology changing the way the law handles these types of cases? The Duke Forum for Law and Social Change and the American Constitution Society present a panel discussion about the use of technology and its implications for law enforcement officers. Panelists include Professor Lisa Kern Griffin (Duke Law School), Professor Darrell A. H. Miller (Duke Law School), Christopher Brook, ACLU of North Carolina's Legal Director, and Scott Holmes (NCCU Law School) a criminal defense attorney.
