The Franklin Borough Police Department has joined law enforcement agencies across the State and deployed body-worn video cameras. The cameras will be used in accordance with the guidelines established by the New Jersey Attorney General. This technology is meant to improve public safety, enhance officer safety, assist with prosecution and case resolution, and further promote professionalism, integrity and transparency.
BWCs will be mounted to an officer’s uniform. The cameras will point away from the officer and will capture images in the camera’s field of vision. Citizens who interact with police officers will be recorded on body camera footage.
