Community Input on BWC Policy Development

On January 31, 2017, the Body Worn Camera Training and Technical Assistance program presented a webinar titled: BWC TTA Webinar on Community Input on BWC Policy Development. External input into the development of body worn camera policies, including justice system and community stakeholders, is a cornerstone of the Bureau of Justice Assistance’s Body Worn Camera Policy and Implementation Program (PIP). This webinar discussed principles and practices regarding police-community collaboration, and how these relate to BWC policy development. Several funded PIP sites;Camden County, New Jersey, Police Department, Dinwiddie County, Virginia's Sheriff's Police Department and Beaverton, Oregon Police Department contributed information regarding how they worked with community groups to inform their BWC policy development.
