Body worn and squad car cameras

BPD General Order 249

Across the nation, the use of body worn and squad car cameras has become a best practice for police departments. Law enforcement agencies are using body worn and squad car cameras in multiple ways, including but not limited to evidence collection, to further document statements and events during the course of an interaction, to enhance the public trust by preserving factual representations of officer-citizen interactions, and to identify training needs. 

The use of the body worn and squad car cameras is governed by General Order 249, Body Worn and Squad Car Cameras.
