BWC TTA Webinar: Strategic Communications, the Media, and BWC Videos

 As body worn cameras are being implemented across the country there is a new expectation for the quick release of footage and information, especially after a deadly use of force incident. This webinar will discuss how agencies can best manage and respond to the media and community after a crisis or high profile event that involves deliberate or inadvertent release of video footage. Join us on October 11th at 12:30pm Eastern for our next BWC TTA webinar. You can register for the webinar here.

New TTA Resource

As part of the BWC TTA Pilot Implementation Program, the TTA team has developed a generic Request for Proposals (RFP) and associated guidance. This guide can be used by agencies during the procurement process to develop a successful RFP. It was developed based on model RFPs and RFPs from specific agencies. The generic RFP describes suggested sections and appendices, as well as suggested budget requirements.
