What does the extraction process involve for body worn camera video?

There is a need for frame by frame review and redaction because of California Penal Code section 832.7(b). A body camera is attached to a deputy's uniform and can go into people's homes, hotel rooms, hospitals, schools and many other private areas showing members of the public who were not involved in the incident. For example in a hospital, while talking to a witness, we cannot show anyone else in the video except the suspect and deputies. We cannot show any medical information on a white board or the computer screens or clip boards, or other patients. When speaking to a confidential informant, we cannot show any identifying information such as plate numbers, house numbers, school uniforms, faces, playgrounds or parks and other places that could be used as reference to identify the home, workplace or school of the informant.
