Over the past 3 years, the West St. Paul Police Department has been researching body cameras. This includes technology, policy development, and implementation. Body cameras are excellent tools for law enforcement to use for the documentation of events, statements, and other types of evidence.
We are currently testing four systems and are hopeful to have full implementation in the fall. In the meantime, we would like your input on the body camera program as well as the draft departmental policy before implementing a final version of the Portable Audio/Video Recorder Policy.
