From The Cincinnati Enquirer The Ohio State Patrol is violating the law by refusing to give to The Enquirer a cruiser camera video of a January car chase, an Enquirer lawsuit against the police agency's parent organization alleges.
"A dash cam is the citizen's most direct view to understand and trust the work of an officer. In this case, the government can't defend why they are withholding it from the community. The law is on the citizen's side," Carolyn Washburn, Enquirer editor and vice president, said.
The suit calls for the Ohio Supreme Court to force the Ohio Department of Public Safety to release the video.
