De Anza College Police Start Wearing Body-Cameras
Last month, Foothill-De Anza Community College District police officers started wearing body cameras and report it’s been smooth filming so far. Every one of the department’s 22 officers, including those in community service, received a new BWCs on March 7, said Ron Levine, the district’s police chief.
“I think that the body-worn camera program will be beneficial for the transparency of our community and to help improve relations with our campus community,” Levine said. “In general, they are an outstanding tool that provides a necessary conduit for law enforcement to record actions with the community and it’s a safeguard, both for the public and for the officers.”
