Privacy & Technology
Bill Number: HB14-1152
Year: 2014
ACLU Position: Support
Sponsors: Lawrence/Scheffel


The bill requires that video or still images obtained by passive surveillance by governmental entities, such as images from monitoring cameras, must be destroyed within 6 months after the recording of the images. Exceptions are made for passive surveillance records of a criminal justice agency where the agency obtains a court order allowing retention of a passive surveillance record because it is necessary for the effective operations and activities of the criminal justice agency and passive surveillance records of any correctional facility, local jail, or private contract prison. The bill also includes a definition of passive surveillance.
