The FY 2018 Body-Worn Camera Policy and Implementation Program will support the implementation of body-worn camera (BWC) programs in law enforcement agencies across the country. The intent of the program is to help agencies develop, implement, and evaluate a BWC program as one tool in a law enforcement agency's comprehensive problem-solving approach to improve officer safety, enhance evidentiary value, and enhance officer interactions in ways that contribute to building community trust and facilitating cooperative engagements. While this grant supports the purchase of BWCs, it will encompass more than just the acquisition of equipment. Integral components of the grant program include policy development, collaboration with other criminal justice agencies and community stakeholders, and adherence to evolving technological, training, and legal standards.
