call it, or in-custody death, officers must be rolling and must upload that video immediately. now, the video is not to be released to the public however we the media can request it through an open records request and then we'll have to see how that is turned over at that time. now, how often use of force incidents are actually recorded by the bay area police departments already using body cameras is going to be the topic of our next conversation. in san jose, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." >> thanks, kris. funerals are going to be held today for three of the five officers shot and killed by a sniper during a protest last week in downtown dallas. >> dallas police senior corp. rail lorne ahrens and michael smith and dallas area rapid transit officer brent thompson will be laid to rest. the two other officers will be buried later this week. yesterday president obama along with president george w. bush led an emotion al memorial for
