|Conference on "Body-Worn Cameras"|
Hundreds of law enforcement agencies across the nation have piloted or are currently using video cameras that can be attached to officers’ clothing, helmets, or sunglasses. “Body-worn cams,” as they are called, can be used to record traffic stops, arrests, and critical incidents such as officer-involved shootings.
While there are a number of perceived benefits to the use of body-worn cameras, there is a lack of technical standards and operational standards for protocols and procedures. PERF will work with police chiefs, sheriffs, criminal justice agencies, practitioners, academics and other experts to assess current challenges in addressing these issues and identify promising approaches from the field.
With funding from the COPS Office, PERF will host an executive session in Washington, DC on September 11, 2013 from 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. to discuss these issues and identify lessons learned.
PERF will utilize the information gathered to recommend promising practices, policy guidelines, and points of consensus among the country’s top law enforcement officials to provide law enforcement chief executives and government policymakers with timely and practical recommendations for addressing the body worn camera issues.
PERF’s conference will be held on Wednesday, September 11 at the Washington Plaza Hotel, 10 Thomas Circle NW, Washington, DC 20005. Breakfast and lunch will not be provided due to COPS Office funding restrictions, but we will have local restaurant suggestions available on site.
