The Deptford Township Police Department announced on February 25, 2022 that all uniformed officers will now be equipped with body-worn cameras. This initiative is part of the New Jersey Attorney General’s Law Enforcement Directive NO. 2021-5 requiring all uniformed police officers to be equipped with body-worn cameras. The public will see the new cameras being worn by police officers working in the Patrol Division.
Body-worn cameras have been effective in memorializing important information during critical incidents. Deptford Township Police Officers are required to activate the body cameras when conducting investigative and enforcement actions such as making an arrest, issuing a summons, searches or stopping a person on the street in the course of an investigation. All officers equipped with body-worn cameras have received training on the devices.
