Usually many of them have SD memory cards in them. If you want to give the police the video..then just hand them the SD card. If you want to just give them a copy then you can ask them what to do or how the want a copy. But under NO circumstances let them use, borrow, or touch your laptop. tablet, camera, etc.

 Once you have transferred the digital image to your laptop/PC, you can then transfer the image to a usb thumb drive. From there you can transfer right to the PC in the cruiser. Don't ask me how I know this...

Most of these dashcams have a small screen so that you can review video, possibly show it to an officer at the scene where you want some evidence in your favor but are not inclined to hand anything over. The officer might insist on a hard copy. (right now I'm not getting into legalities, rights, laws, etc)

In that case, remove the SD card...then you can copy the files over to your computer, then email them, or copy the pertinent files to another SD card and hand that one over, or you can simply hand over your full SD card to an officer, of course then they have all of your driving history that day including running red lights, illegal lane changes, whatever. Some of us choose to record audio too, so keep in mind that whatever you have said that day, uttered, griped about, listened to on the radio, etc, will be included in the file, if you have audio recording turned on.

Up to you of course.
Survived that last catastrophe....NEXT!

A certain "group" wanted access to PIRS and the Not spoken about database. PIRS is Police Information & Retrieval System. So they staged a car accident involving a police cruiser. It was of those iffy accidents in which footage from the rear would be very helpful. "Luckily" a helpful citizen had a dashcam and wanted to help the poor officer. Gave him the Card Sim. The officer anxious to be able to prove, what he knew was his innocence plugged the file into his PC (police cruiser) but also a Microsoft product laptop. Connected to mainframe server and POW! Malware loaded and a powerful criminal enterprise had 72 hours of access. Helpful Charlie Citizen was gone, and the girl driving the other car had no connections to anything organized.

Now they have strict procedures in place to eliminate the stupid factor.
