Body-Worn Camera Information
The North Plainfield Police Department has implemented the use of bodyworn cameras. Body-worn cameras will improve public transparency, help improve Officer training and performance, resolve citizen complaints, as well as aid in follow up investigations and prosecutions. Negative police encounters will be reviewed, documented, and investigated to our fullest capability in accordance with regulations and policy. The two photos displayed are typical locations body-worn cameras will be utilized. The first image displays the camera in the chest mounted configuration. The second displays the utility belt mounting configuration. No matter what option is chosen the officer will mount the camera on the outer most garment as well as capture the area in their field of vision.
