ICE Body Camera Act of 2017
This bill directs U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to ensure that all deportation officers of its Enforcement and Removal Operations wear body cameras when engaged in field operations or removal proceedings.
ICE must establish policies for:
- when officers should wear, activate, and deactivate such cameras;
- the effective placement of such cameras;
- receiving and storing accurate recordings;
- the proper management and use of such cameras; and
- the availability of recordings to the subjects of removal proceedings, victims of crime, and the general public and for internal use by law enforcement officials.
A recording shall be provided to each party to any administrative proceeding, civil action, or criminal prosecution to which it pertains.
