If you have an attorney, you should ask them this question. Getting evidence, even from a bank, just takes a subpoena, which your attorney should know how to get.
As for your case, if the officer is thorough, they should have already gotten a copy of the footage and examined it before forwarding to the prosecutor. On less serious cases, however, I have known officers to ignore possible video evidence and just take the witnesses’ word for it. Your attorney should know how to deal with this.
