Body-Worn Camera Policy Review Scorecard
Bureau of Justice Assistance
As part of the Bureau of Justice Assistance Body-Worn Camera (BWC) Pilot Implementation Program (PIP), a Training and Technical Assistance (TTA) team—composed of members of CNA, Arizona State University, and Justice and Security Strategies, Inc.—has created a BWC Policy Review Scorecard (“the Scorecard”). The Scorecard assesses the comprehensiveness of an agency’s BWC policy, captures local issues that influence policy (e.g., specific state regulations), and identifies areas for policy enhancement.
The purpose of these instructions is to provide law enforcement agencies with guidance on how to review BWC policies using the Scorecard. Interested agencies can access the Scorecard here. Instructions for completing the Scorecard can be found here.
If desired, upon completion of the review and scoring of the policy, an agency may send the self-reported Scorecard to the BWC TTA team (BWCTTA@cna.org) for review. The TTA team will then provide a formal letter that details its assessment of the policy.
