RE: Federal Law Enforcement Body-Worn Camera Program
On May 18, the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) in the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) launched the Body-Worn Camera Toolkit at the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Law Enforcement Information Management Conference.
The Toolkit is an online resource for stakeholders and will include lessons learned for implementation, model policies and procedures, and research materials. The Toolkit will consolidate and transmit research, promising practices, templates, and tools that have been developed by high-quality experts.
Areas of focus include procurement considerations; training needs; implementation requirements; retention issues; policy concerns; information of interest to prosecutors, domestic violence, and victim and privacy advocates; community engagement; and funding considerations.
BJA also released the Body-Worn Camera Pilot Implementation Program solicitation. Applications are due June 16, 2015.
For more information on BJA’s Body-Worn Camera Pilot Implementation Program, read or download the fact sheet.
Contact Jon Moran at 609-695-3481, Ext. 121 or firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have any questions.
Very truly yours,
