Dayton backs body-camera bill sought by law enforcement agencies


Gov. Mark Dayton on Tuesday signed a bill that sets statewide standards for footage gathered by body cameras on police officers, a controversial measure that pitted law enforcement against civil libertarians and some community activists.

Dayton had previously expressed concern about the body camera bill, and he gave only a terse explanation of support in a letter accompanying word of his signature. "I have signed this bill to honor my promise to legislative sponsors that I would do so, if an objectionable provision were removed."
