Tennessee House Bill 1475 would create a felony for officers who disable body cameras

Proposed changes to the law could give the DA more options when prosecuting police officers who violate department policy.

It would target officers who intentionally turn off their body-worn cameras.

If any citizen does something to intentionally impede a police investigation, you can face a felony charge, and police officers are no different.

But new technology being introduced can leave a gray area. Now, a new bill being filed wants to fix that.
