Ewing Police Department implements Body Worn Camera program

5/11/2016
On Monday, May 2nd 2016 the Ewing Police Department implemented it’s Body
Worn Camera program after several weeks of testing Watchguard Vista HD
cameras.

The testing period allowed the department to adjust the settings and
ensure that we get the most battery life for our officers working the 12-hour
shifts. This testing also allowed us to become more proficient with the operation
of the cameras and the back-end software that downloads, stores and allows us
to view the footage. Although testing is complete, this is new technology, and we
will continue to evaluate and make changes to our program as we discover what
doesn’t work and what will make it work better.

Each officer working patrol will be required to wear a body worn camera as per
our General Order which was structured from the NJ Attorney General’s directive
issued on July 28 th 2015. We believe that the use of these cameras along with
other programs that we are implementing such as foot and bike patrols as well as
our School Monitoring assignments, where officers visit the schools to walk
around and interact with the students, will help us continue to foster our
relationship with the community and the trust that the community has in us.
