Will I be allowed to review the video data collected?

No. The video captured with the body worn camera is considered an investigative record per Government Code Section 7923.600-7923.625. The department will comply fully with the Public Records Act as it applies to body worn cameras, but considers all footage exempt from disclosure, except as is determined otherwise by department officials or a court of law.

Furthermore, one of the most critical issues for the public interacting with the police is privacy. People often seek police assistance when they are going through a difficult time. Juveniles, victims and arrestees have strong privacy protections, in part to mitigate the negative impact of open information. The Fontana Police Department is committed to protect the safety and privacy of all individuals who interact with the police.
