Body Worn Video Disclosure Actual Cost

Public Hearing on the proposal to include new fee for records disclosure for body worn video. The Lynnwood Police Department has instituted body worn cameras which capture video and audio. RCW 42.56.070 permits public agencies to charge actual costs for preparing records for disclosure. This state code also requires us to demonstrate how the actual costs were determined and provide notice and public hearing prior to adoption of the fee.

RCW 42.56.240 (14) provides for the exemption of some of the audio and video records to the extent nondisclosure is essential for the protection of any person’s right to privacy. In order to protect the exempt records, the department will need to pixilate, distort, or remove the image or audio record, using trained staff members to apply they redactions.

A public hearing is required for this action and is scheduled for March 28th, with adoption of the ordinance requested for April 11th.
