Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2021, $70,000)

The Henderson Police Department is submitting this grant application to begin a new Body Worn Camera (BWC) Program for the agency. The agency currently has no body worn cameras, only in-car video systems for designated Patrol vehicles. The agency is proposing to implement this project using grant funding for 50% of the cost and local (match) funds for 50% of the cost. Due to the agency currently having in-car cameras and digital image technology from Watch-Guard we are proposing to use this vendor as a sole source vendor in order to integrate their Body-worn Camera units with our already existing In-Car Video system.

Size of the agency in total current full time sworn officers:   52

Total current Part-time Officers:                                               9
Number of Cameras the agency proposed to be purchased:   52

Date Created: December 17, 2021
