Speaker, New Jersey State Bar Association 2019 Annual Meeting and Convention, "Public Access to Police Records: Transparency, Privacy and the State of the Law," Atlantic City, NJ


May 15, 2019 | 9:30 AM - May 15, 2019 | 11:10 AM EST

Featuring: Thomas J. Cafferty

This panel will provide an update on the law regarding access to various types of police records under OPRA and the common law, including recent court decisions on dash cameras, body cameras, surveillance cameras, internal affairs records, and use of force reports. The panel will also discuss how recent developments in technology have resulted in police departments capturing more and more moments on film that may implicate privacy interests and how courts have balanced the interest in transparency and the public’s right to know against an individual’s reasonable expectation of privacy.
