REQUESTING POLICE RECORDINGS (Video & Audio) in Pennsylvania– ACT 22 of 2017

Office of Open Records- Police Recordings information and requesting Police Recordings

How to File a Request

Under Act 22, a request for an audio or video recording in the possession of a law enforcement agency must be made within 60 days of the date the recording was made. Requests must be submitted via personal delivery or certified mail (§67A03).

A written request must be submitted to the Agency Open Records Officer (AORO) for the law enforcement agency that possesses the record. The request is not officially received until it is personally delivered to the AORO, or when it is marked as “delivered” by certified mail.

The request must include:

  • The date, time and location of the event recorded;
  • A statement describing the requester’s relationship to the event recorded; and
  • If the recorded incident took place inside a residence, the request must also identify every person present at the time of the recording, unless unknown and not reasonably ascertainable.

Once a request is filed, the agency has 30 days to respond, although the requester and agency can agree to an extension.

The OOR has developed this request form for police recordings (also available as a Word file) to help ensure that requesters include all of the required information.
