How does the Body Worn Camera program increase accountability?

The presence of a body worn camera or any recording device has proven to increase professionalism from both officers and citizens and reduce some incidents of violent public interactions.

Recordings also give staff the ability to conduct administrative reviews and audits of both individual recordings and the overall program, in accordance with our policy. Recordings may also be reviewed by staff to improve service levels, tactics, and training for our employees.
