Key Trends in Body-Worn Camera Policy and Practice: A Five Year Policy Analysis of US Department of Justice-Funded Law Enforcement Agencies

Administrative policy review is a central feature of the training and technical assistance (TTA) provided to the PIP sites. The TTA team developed a policy review process and BWC Policy Review Scorecard to assess the comprehensiveness of BWC policies. This report describes the results of an analysis of 405 policies from fiscal year (FY) 2015–2019 grantees that had their BWC policy scorecards approved through this process. Through review of the 405 agency policies, we identified key BWC policy trends across 11 important BWC issues. Several of the trends involve substantial policy differences between agencies funded in different years.
