What does the extraction process involve for video/electronic records?

The work to review, redact and prepare a video clip for public release is performed by a time consuming, manual frame-by-frame process. This is very labor intensive especially when the whole camera field of view or the subjects in the video are moving. 

For example, a 20-minute interview of a witness standing against a wall may take up to eight hours to redact or cover this witness' face.  CPRA video redactions will be done by specially-trained personnel.
