No problem.

My receiver fee is $290/hr.

$290 is actually a pretty good rate for Vegas

Seems like the state legislature should pass a law that any such fees go into general-fund of the municipality, county, or the state.  The police departments should not be in the business of funding themselves through fees, their budgets should come solely from the civilian/legislative budget processes.

Going by tfa, it isn't that they don't already own the footaga. It is that someone has to spend 4 hours to scrub faces etc of random bystanders from the footage.

LVMPD is still probably pissed about that story from a few years back when the LV Sun newspaper did this massive in-depth story about cops who would constantly shoot unarmed suspects. They tried deterring the story by declining to provide anything under FoIA and saying it would be over $12,000 to provide all the archived paperwork the reporters wanted. A great chilling effect until the paper decides to pay the fees, and the story pushes ahead.

This isn't that hard, we don't need all police footage released to the public, we just need it so that any *request* police footage is released to the public.  If your officer drove around on patrol eating donuts all day and had 1 mundane traffic stop, sweet, we'll probably never request that.

But your boy who shot someone innocent in a no-knock raid? You're damn right that better come out to the public and pronto after a request. That you might need to "scrub" for faces, but really, all of it should be released unfiltered.

If a civilian can walk around and release footage from being next to the cop, then the cop can too, because... HE'S ALSO A CIVILIAN.

I dunno...it takes me about a second to pick up my phone and take a picture and then another 5-10 minutes editing it in Paint and trying to remove any EXIF crap before I post it.

On the other hand, nobody has ever paid me for posting a picture on the internet.

Speaking of which, is it Caturday yet?  Because I think I took a good picture this week.

I'm trying to figure out how one hour of footage requires four hours of work and the only explanation I can come up with is outright fraud.

Or are they counting the time it takes to review the footage and remove anything that makes the police look bad?

Not if the interaction occurred in public as there is no expectation of privacy.  Also, for video requested for legal purposes, scrubbing could be considered tampering with evidence.

I just searched a video posted in another thread to hear a statement that was quoted by a famous person. The video was about an hour long. I found the part I was looking for in under 5 minutes by clicking around the video and listening to topics of conversation.

Searching through police interactions would take far less time than what I was doing, PARTICULARLY if the police are documenting things correctly.

No. the whole point of body cam footage is that it create surveillance of the police. The fee makes all the body cam footage automatically private and unwatchable by the vast majority of people.

The LVPD is adding the fee at a time when they were violent and broke multiple laws.

How much to get your own security cameras' DVR back after it recorded them killing a teenager on your premises?
And will it have the information that it saved which is technically yours, or will it be wiped clean?
Oh, and will they pay for the security cameras they destroyed during which?

/no, really.
//like stupid criminals who destroy the security cameras like it would destroy the footage if their already-captured mug

How many cops should we "release" to pay for 280 an hour? About 4-5 cops to be fired to pay for every camera? That seems a fair compromise.

This.  We paid for the cameras, we paid for the car the cop got to the scene in, we pay for the building the Police station is housed in, and we pay the officer's salary.  That footage was completely paid for by us or it wouldn't exist to begin with.

Sounds like a prime reason to pull all tax funds from their budget, and take all that stuff away.  Tell the cops they can continue to charge that fee, but now they'll have no tax budget, and have to find a new building, and buy new cars, guns, and uniforms.  Then to protect yourselves from cops getting hungry to write tickets, get dash cams, and drive the speed limit.  Oh, and every time someone defends themselves in court and wins, the court fees come out of their new budget system.  No more people having to pay a court fee to fight a ticket, unless they lose.  Be a bit more like a civil court, where loser pays the fee.  They also have to pay the DA's office for their lawyer work on every case.  No more public funded lawyers for them.  So yeah, I'm up for them charging that fee, if it means they have to survive without any tax money.
