Project Overview

The Phoenix Police Department will use their 2015 SPI award under the body worn camera category to deploy additional body worn cameras (BWCs) among random patrol officers citywide. The continual data collection and research will determine whether this form of BWC deployment is a more effective and efficient method of deploying BWCs. The goal is to decrease citizen complaints, evaluate the process and outcome of internal investigations for positive resolutions, and improve police/community relationships through transparency, accountability, and legitimacy, which will enhance public and officer safety.
