Body Worn Camera Program
The deadline is fast approaching for the Body-Worn Camera Pilot Implementation Program Solicitation. Law enforcement agencies across the country and worldwide are using body-worn cameras as a promising tool to improve law enforcement interactions with the public. Body-worn cameras can provide a visual and audio record of interactions. Some preliminary evidence indicates that the presence of body-worn cameras helps strengthen accountability and transparency, and can assist in de-escalating conflicts, resulting in more constructive encounters between the police and members of the community.
This competitive solicitation is for law enforcement agencies seeking to establish or enhance body-worn camera policy and implementation programs. Additionally, this solicitation seeks applications for one national training and technical assistance provider to build national capacity in support of recommended body-worn camera policy.
Applicants must register with Grants.gov prior to submitting an application. All applications are due to be submitted and in receipt of a successful validation message in Grants.gov by 11:59 p.m. eastern time on June 16, 2015.
