BWC TTA (2019)

Body-worn cameras (BWCs) represent one of the most important advancements in policing over the past century, and they present formidable challenges on several fronts –community engagement, policy development and implementation, equipment selection and purchase costs, equipment maintenance and storage costs, privacy concerns, training, impacts and coordination across the justice system, program assessment, and more. This catalog provides a thorough list of the training and technical assistance (TTA) resources currently available to BWC TTA grantees through the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) Body-Worn Camera Policy and Implementation Program (BWC PIP). These resources cover a wide array of categories, including legal, policy, privacy, procurement and budgeting, research, stakeholder engagement, technology, and training. For each of these topic areas, resources are available in a variety of formats, such as In View Commentaries, podcasts, webinars, templates, reports, subject experts, and mentor sites.

This catalog serves as a starting point for finding resources for agencies implementing BWCs. The catalog is currently organized by BWC resource category, with each resource category section organized by resource format. Each resource category section has its own introduction that lists the most common subtopics. This catalog is one of many resources currently available, and the BWC TTA team will update it periodically.
