Body-Worn Cameras

Body-worn cameras (BWCs) are relatively small devices that record interactions between community members (e.g., the public, suspects, and victims) and law enforcement officers.

The video and audio recordings from BWCs can be used by law enforcement to demonstrate transparency to their communities; to document statements, observations, behaviors, and other evidence; and to deter unprofessional, illegal, and inappropriate behaviors by both law enforcement and the public.

                                          The body camera is located on the front of the officer in the middle of their chest.                       The body cam is a black rectangle with a round lens. It has a green light when active.
