Body Worn Cameras
Uniformed officers of the Paterson Police Department wear body worn cameras at all times while on duty. Not only do the cameras serve as useful tools for recording evidence, more importantly, they promote professionalism, accountability, and transparency by documenting officer conduct and interactions with the public.
Body cameras are worn to enhance community trust and record public interactions in an official capacity. The cameras are worn on the police officers outermost garment, in the center of the upper body. The body worn cameras are used in accordance with the New Jersey Attorney General’s Directive and Paterson Police Department policy.
