The purpose of this opportunity is to fund the purchase of body-worn cameras (BWC) that are implemented as part of comprehensive BWC programs.
Funding under this program supports agencies seeking to establish or expand comprehensive BWC programs and have specified plans to implement this technology in a manner that maximizes the benefits of BWCs. As part of their submission, applicants must describe a deliberate and phased plan to deploy this technology, as well as specific ways it will be used to enhance the applicant agency’s mission.
Funds must be used to purchase body-worn cameras and require a 1:1 match by the grantee. Federal funds shall not be used to pay for data storage costs associated with body-worn camera footage.
