To obtain public release of body camera footage, it is not required to file a full complaint in Superior Court. You cannot use the basic AOC form. To assist activists and attorneys around the state, Elizabeth Simpson and UNC Law students Morgan Schriner and Jack Salt created a template complaint for anyone seeking general public release of body camera footage from a law enforcement encounter. 

You can use and modify this template in your North Carolina county courthouse.
