BJA Launches the Body-Worn Camera Toolkit

The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) has released the Body-Worn Camera Toolkit, an online clearinghouse of resources designed to support law enforcement professionals plan and implement body-worn camera programs. This free resource consolidates and translates the growing body of knowledge about body-worn camera programs and technology. In direct response to the President's Task Force on 21st Century Policing, BJA developed the toolkit to assist law enforcement agencies to implement body-worn camera programs in a way that builds on the best research currently available, with input from criminal justice and community stakeholders.
The website's features includes information, templates and tools focused on model policies and procedures, privacy considerations, lessons learned for implementation, and training needs. For more information, visit the Body-Worn Camera Toolkit at or email
