The Paterson Police Department is proud to announce the deployment of body worn cameras. 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. PPD uniformed officers assigned to the Pilot Program will wear body cameras during their tour of duty.
Body cameras will be worn to enhance community trust and record public interactions in an official capacity. The cameras will be worn on the police officers outermost garment, in the center of the upper body. The body worn cameras will be used in accordance with the New Jersey Attorney General’s Directive and Paterson Police Department policy.
