We are learning that the implementation of body worn camera (BWC) technology involves more than the introduction of new technology into law enforcement. Full implementation of BWCs in a police agency affects key areas of operations and administration, as well as internal and external stakeholders, in significant ways. For many departments, the implementation of BWCs is in direct response to community and stakeholder concerns about police use of force and the desire for transparency in how these incidents are investigated, reviewed, and managed.
Many cities, trying to implement body worn cameras, have found data storage and related costs to be a major stumbling block. Data retention and storage options are equally important to understand when building a body worn camera program.This webinar provided both options and solutions to many of the storage issues departments encounter.
