N.J. Looking into Police Body Cameras

N.J. Looking into Police Body Cameras
BY TRISH GRABER
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

TRENTON – Legislation sponsored by Senator Shirley K. Turner and Senator Linda R. Greenstein to establish the “Police Body Camera Implementation Task Force” to study and make recommendations on the use of body cameras by certain law enforcement in New Jersey – including requirements for implementation and best practices for the use of the cameras – was approved today by the Senate.

The task force would be comprised of representatives of law enforcement as well as civil liberties, civil rights and victims’ rights organizations, and include legislators, mayors and the Attorney General. The group would be charged with determining the most effective method of implementing body cameras in the state and guidelines for their use. The bill (S-2649) defines a “body camera” as a camera worn by a law enforcement officer that electronically records audio and video while the officer acts in the performance of his official duties.
