Under current rules, after incidents in which police fatally shoot a suspect, a San Francisco Police Officer is allowed to review any footage captured on body cameras before speaking with internal investigators who are determining if charges should be pressed.

Chief of Police Bill Scott has proposed an amendment to this regulation, which would mean officers could only view their own camera footage before speaking with investigators. In the past, viewing footage from other officers' cameras or security camera footage has been seen as influencing the situation.
