DOVER, Del. (AP) — A bill requiring the use of body cameras by police officers and certain other government employees working in a law enforcement capacity has cleared a state House committee.

Members of the Judiciary Committee voted unanimously Wednesday to release the bill to the full House despite questions as to how the body camera requirement might interfere with police collective bargaining agreements.

The legislation applies to police officers, certain corrections employees, and certain officials working with juvenile offenders. Regulations regarding body camera use and electronic storage and dissemination of the images would be established by the state Council on Police Training.
