SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The San Francisco Police Commission is poised to vote on rules for how officers should use body cameras.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports (https://sfg.ly/1O3Ipgw ) that the commission is scheduled to vote Wednesday, but first they must agree on whether officers should be able to view footage from the camera before filing a report, including after an officer-involved shooting.

Since Mayor Ed Lee announced he wanted San Francisco police to use body-warn cameras six months ago, a working group to the Police Commission has been unable to agree on the footage policy.

The commission will choose between two options, one where officers are allowed to view footage for investigatory purposes, and another that prevents officers from viewing footage if they are involved in a shooting, death or criminal investigation.
