Your Arrest Video Is Going Online. Who Will See It? - The Daily Beast:
Police departments are already outsourcing their video evidence to
private companies, creating problems so knotty and new that even the
ACLU doesn’t have answers for them. Among them:
• How long
will evidence be stored, and how will police departments verify the
information has actually been wiped after its supposed deletion date?
• Will federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies like
the FBI and NSA need warrants and subpoenas to view the digital
evidence in private companies’ cloud storage? And will they deal with
local police departments or go directly to the private storage services?
• Will the public get to see the police footage, for example, when there is evidence of misconduct?
• What happens when a private company’s server is hacked and evidence is lost or compromised?
