The webinar explored the overall management of critical incidents and the role that body-worn cameras (BWCs) have within that incident management. The main purpose of the webinar was to provide guidance on the essential aspects of managing a critical incident and share insight on how agencies work with each other throughout the aftermath of a critical incident.

Subject matter expert Christian Quinn provided his perspective as a retired law enforcement official. Representatives from the Garfield, New Jersey, Police Department and neighboring Bergen County, New Jersey, Prosecutor’s Office discussed the role of BWCs in forensics and the investigation of a critical incident, how prosecutors use BWCs following that incident, and the role of BWCs in ensuring that lessons are learned following the incident.
