Body-Worn Camera Pilot A Success

A town hall was held last week to discuss the use of body-worn cameras by Durham Regional Police. Close to 80 officers from west division and regional traffic enforcement have been wearing the devices since the pilot project began last summer. In just over nine months, officers have captured over 20,000 videos, with nearly half being used as evidence in criminal investigations. So far the project is on time and on budget; the service says use of the cameras has not affected productivity or call response.
