Can I have access to the officer's dashboard camera footage?

Dashboard camera evidence may be available at a trial, but usually not before.
Having access to information prior to trial is generally know at law as “discovery.” New York Courts have held that while you do have a right to supporting deposition, there is no constitutional right to general discovery in a traffic case.
This means that before actually beginning a trial, and perhaps having the prosecutor introduce the dash cam evidence, you do not generally have a right to see it.
