Beginning in January, Michigan will have rules in place for the disclosures and retention of audio or video recordings from body cameras worn by police officers.

Legislation signed by Gov. Rick Snyder exempts the recordings from public records request under certain circumstances, including if the recordings were made in a private place.

According to the Lansing State Journal, the law also requires law enforcement agencies that use body worn cameras to develop a written policy regarding their use by officers.
