TUCSON, Ariz. — Tucson city council plans to revisit a controversial ordinance later this month.

The ordinance keeps citizens from filming police within a crime scene or another established barrier.

It passed back in April, but has faced criticism recently because of nationwide attention.

Now, Mayor Regina Romero and city council have said they'll review the ordinance at the meeting on June 23.

At that time, they could leave the ordinance as-is, make amendments to the ordinance, or pause it's effective date to give the public more time to respond.

For now, the City of Tucson is accepting public comment through email at comments@tucsonaz.gov
