East Windsor Township Announces New Body Worn Camera Program for Township Police Department
Published on Oct 03, 2017 at 11:03a.m.
The East Windsor Township Police Department will be implementing a new Body Worn Camera program starting on Monday, October 2, 2017, assisted by a $15,000.00 grant from the New Jersey Attorney General’s Body Worn Camera Grant Program.
The Watchguard Video "Vista Wearable Body Worn Camera" was selected for this program because it incorporates seamlessly with the Police Department's existing in-car audio/video digital recording system, also by Watchguard Video. The cameras are black in color, about 3 inches tall and 2 inches wide, and display a red light when recording. The camera will be worn on the officers outer most layer of clothing. All patrol officers and supervisors assigned to patrol duties will be issued a Body Worn Camera. The program will begin on October 2 and all Body Worn Cameras will be deployed shortly thereafter.
