Today, DOJ’s Office of Justice Programs’ Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) launched the National Body-Worn Camera Toolkit, an online clearinghouse of resources designed to help law enforcement professionals and the communities they serve plan and implement BWC programs. The toolkit consolidates and translates research, promising practices, templates and tools that have been developed by subject matter experts.  Areas of focus include procurement; training; implementation; retention and policies along with interests of prosecutors, defense attorneys, victim and privacy advocates and community members.

HAPCOA will present a course at its 42nd Annual National Training Symposium, in San Antonio, TX (November 16-20, 2015), on Body-Worn Cameras with the support of the BJA.
