OKLAHOMA CITY – A bill changing the rules and exemptions for dashcam video from the Oklahoma City Highway Patrol is headed to the governor’s desk.

Every law enforcement agency in the state is subject to the Open Records Act.

When dashcam video is part of the arrest, it is made available to the public.

The exception, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Several years ago the OHP lobbied for a special exemption  to the Open Records Act for the audio and video.

This new bill headed to Gov. Fallin includes exceptions for dashcam videos showing nudity, minors, fatalities and other officer conduct that is part on an ongoing investigation.
