New Law Requires certain police vehicles with cameras

The Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee reports favorably Assembly Bill No. 2280.

      The bill requires certain municipal police vehicles to be equipped with mobile video recording systems, and increases an existing surcharge on persons convicted of driving while intoxicated to provide funding for the municipal cost of equipping police vehicles with video systems.  Under the bill, every new or used municipal police vehicle purchased, leased, or otherwise acquired on or after the bill’s effective date that is primarily used for traffic stops must be equipped with a mobile video recording system.

      The bill defines a “mobile video recording system” as a device or system installed or used in a police vehicle or worn or otherwise used by an officer that electronically records visual images depicting activities that take place during a motor vehicle stop or other law enforcement action.

      The bill increases, from $100 to $125, the current surcharge imposed on persons convicted of driving while intoxicated. The bill provides for the additional $25 surcharge to be payable to the State, county, or municipal entity that issued the summons, and stipulates that the increased amounts payable to municipalities from the surcharge must be used for the cost of equipping police vehicles with mobile video recording systems.

      The bill requires the Attorney General to adopt rules and regulations to effectuate the bill’s provisions.  The bill takes effect on the first day of the sixth month following enactment, but permits the Attorney General to take prior administrative actions in advance of the bill’s effective date.

      As reported, this bill is identical to Senate Bill No. 1305, as also reported by the committee.
