Over the past decade or two, dashboard-mounted police squad vehicle cameras have proliferated across Minnesota law enforcement agencies. Accordingly, squad video has become common evidence in cases involving traffic stops. But just because squad video may not exist in some criminal cases, that does not mean the prosecutor will dismiss the case. In these situations, it just means the prosecutor must use other evidence to prove their case in court. This could involve eyewitness or officer testimony, audio recorded statements, or photographs. Missing or non-existent squad video is equally lamented by defendants and prosecutors who want objective evidence to refute each other’s claims.
