Good evening. If there is a court order, they would need to turn it over and if there is a pending court case, you could obtain a subpoena and they would be required to do so. The video belongs to them and it is their property, so they do not just have to turn it over but if the police contact they likely would or if you get a court order. You can certainly ask but they are not required.
