On January 29th at 1:00 pm ET, the BWC TTA provider hosted a webinar, Body-Worn Cameras in Correctional Settings. This webinar focused on the use of BWCs within correctional settings, specifically, in jails and prisons. The presenters explored the limited but growing use of BWCs within correctional institutions, differences between use by correctional entities and local law enforcement, issues unique to corrections, differences between use in local jails and state prisons, relevant research, and the future of BWCs within corrections.
