DOJ is launching a $20 million pilot program

Law enforcement agencies across the country and worldwide are using body-worn cameras (BWCs)/body-worn video (BWV) as a promising tool to improve law enforcement interactions with the public. BWCs can provide a visual and audio record of interactions and document procedural compliance. These recordings have been shown to reduce complaints which in turn saves agencies time and money on investigating and settling unfounded complaints. Some preliminary evidence also indicates that the presence of BWCs helps strengthen 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 BWC Policy and Implementation Programs (PIP). Successful applicants will be responsible for a mandatory 50 percent in-kind or cash match.
