Body-Worn Cameras in a University Setting

On this episode of LE Tech Talks, Dr. Janne Gaub sat down with officers from three University Police Agencies, Chief Ed Book from the Santa Fe College Police Department, Captain Jason Wade with the University of Oregon Police Department, and Lieutenant Bradli Millington from the Kansas State University Police Department, who all implemented BWCs in their departments through the Body Worn Camera Policy and Implementation program.

In this first segment of the podcast, Dr. Gaub discussed with Chief Book, Captain Wade and Lieutenant Millington what led their agencies to implement BWCs, what special considerations specific to higher education they addressed as part of the planning and implementation, and the unique characteristics of the collegiate setting that proved positive and negative for implementing BWCs.
