Body-Worn Camera Toolkit

Support is set up to assist with the implementation process of body-worn cameras. Whether it is a question, policy scorecard review process or subject matter expert advice, BJA’s Body-Worn Camera (BWC) Technical and Training Assistance (TTA) program is there to support law enforcement agencies, justice partners, and communities through the process. The support is offered free to all agencies regardless of whether they were funded through BJA’s BWC grants.

To learn more about BJA-funded Body-Worn Camera Technical and Training Resources, check out the BWC TTA website.

You can also email your questions or feedback to our support team at [email protected].
