    Summary

    The purpose of this grant program is to aid municipal police departments and county sheriffs offices in establishing or enhancing body-worn camera (BWC) programs. The goal of the Criminal Justice Division is to provide needed funding to improve public safety and support victims of crime by addressing system gaps and promoting innovative solutions to common problems.

    CJD is accepting applications for the purchase of body cameras and digital storage systems to serve as a tool in a law enforcement comprehensive problem-solving approach to enhance officer interactions with the public, build community trust, and gather important evidence for use in the prosecution of crimes. Grant funds are restricted to the cost of body-worn cameras, digital video storage, and retrieval systems or services. CJD will not pay for any service or subscription-based support that exceeds the cost prorated to the one-year project period. Grant funds must be used to equip officers employed directly by a municipal police department or a county sheriff's office. Funds may not be used to equip officers employed by other agencies that are not eligible for this funding.
