Through this opportunity, the Bureau of Justice Assistance is seeking applications for funding law enforcement agencies seeking to purchase body-worn cameras (BWCs) to establish or expand comprehensive body-worn camera programs with a specific and demonstrated plan to implement this technology to maximize the benefits of BWCs.
Eligible agencies include law enforcement agencies, correctional agencies that perform law enforcement functions, prosecutors’ offices, and state or regional consortia that support such agencies, including state administrating agencies. Eligibility is restricted to agencies that are publicly funded. State and regional consortia are eligible to apply, provided they are considered a public agency.
BJA and CNA Corporation hosted a webinar on April 19, 2022, to provide an overview of the solicitation and share helpful information with those interested in applying for funding through the opportunity. Webinar materials are now available:
