BWC TTA Updates

Taking a case study approach, researchers from JSS, ASU, CNA, and BJA examine the process for managing BWC footage in seven agencies: Two large police departments (Phoenix, AZ and Los Angeles, CA); two mid-size police agencies (Glendale, AZ and Rochester, NY); a Sheriff's Office (Harris County, TX), and a collaborative effort in South Florida (Broward County State Attorney's Office and Fort Lauderdale Police Department).

Missouri’s St. Louis County Police Department (SLCPD) developed helpful applications of body-worn cameras (BWCs) by integrating cameras from multiple sources into one readily accessible platform. The integration of BWCs with automated license plate readers (ALPRs), Missouri Department of Transportation highway cameras, and other video sources allows users to access video data from multiple sources. This integrated system is managed by the SLCPD Camera Systems Unit (CSU), which maintains the physical devices and processes all of the footage. In creating a single platform, SLCPD turned its BWC system into an application that improves operations, efficiency, and officer safety.

Welcome to the world of body-worn cameras (BWC) for Small, Rural, and Tribal (SRT) law enforcement agencies. 

The SRT micro-grant program is funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) and operated by Justice & Security Strategies, Inc. (JSS). The purpose of this initiative is to provide funds and technical support to small, rural, and tribal agencies to implement body-worn cameras.

We hope that this site provides you with timely, relevant, and useful information about body-worn cameras (BWCs).


The webinar explored the overall management of critical incidents and the role that BWCs have within that incident management. The main purpose of the webinar was to provide guidance on the essential aspects of managing a critical incident and share insight on how agencies work with each other throughout the aftermath of a critical incident.
