Assistant Professor of Law Steven R. Morrison has been appointed by the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers to chair a special task force which will explore the use of police officer-worn body cameras as well as the use of other recording devices, and audio and/or video by citizens. In addition the task force will most likely explore the use of dash cams in police cruisers and civilian vehicles. This task force arose largely because of the events that occurred in Ferguson, MO and was made more salient after the recent shooting in South Carolina. Professor Morrison joins a group of prominent criminal defense attorneys from around the U.S. in his work on this task force.
