The Department of Justice (DOJ) recognizes body-worn cameras as a law enforcement strategy aimed at improving public safety, reducing crime, and improving public trust between police and the citizens they serve. DOJ provides numerous resources to assist state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies in developing and enhancing their body-worn camera programs. In addition to the resources listed below, the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program is a valuable resource for agencies when seeking funds to implement body-worn camera programs.
