New Jersey Buying 5,000 Body Cameras for Police Departments

December 22, 2015  | 

State officials on Monday announced grants to 176 police departments to buy more than 5,000 body cameras, a move they claim puts New Jersey at the "forefront" of states embracing the relatively new technology. 

Acting Attorney General John J. Hoffman said Monday the $2.5 million program, announced this summer to "overwhelming" interest, would more than double the number of departments using the technology, NJ.com reports.

The funding comes at a time of increased scrutiny of interactions between police and private citizens, spurred in part by high-profile police shootings across the U.S. and in New Jersey.

"We are confronting the fact that we all see the world through the distorted glass of our own personal concerns, experiences and interests," the attorney general said during the announcement, held at Rutgers University. "What a body-worn camera does is give us an objective witness in a police-involved shooting and other use of force cases."

Let's see how long it takes to implement (you know, clipping them on and also turning them on). That turning them on part is pretty important.

Here she goes again...percy you are a complete jackass!! you hate cops so much,but your on a cop web site? yeah that's pretty smart. is this what your mom taught you? where is your mom? oh, that's right...nevermind.
Onto this article about the cams. I believe that most cops will embrace this change. it will definately cut down on complaints and prove that p.o.s. like percy, are nothing but a bunch of bitter a-holes and will do anything to try to get out of being responsible for their own actions.

@ S.S.
1 Yes dear, my mother is out turning tricks just like you always say.

2 Where have you been, on another PM sanctioned time out for your potty mouth.

2 question. Are you L.E.? What do you do for a living? Thank you. Now go away.

S.S. @ 12/28/2015 7:43 AM

Waiting........

percy @ 12/28/2015 10:50 PM

@S.S. says "Waiting........"

Yes dear, yes you are.
It's almost comedic that you feel I should answer questions from you.

1 You told me to go away. Interesting interrogation technique, how is it working for you?

2 Based on the your angry and fact-less comments the only thing you are qualified to ask me is for the time.

3 I have guessed your rank again based on your comments and have concluded that you must salute the guy in the bathroom who gives out the towels.

S.S. @ 1/1/2016 8:12 AM

THANK YOU, dumb b**ch couldn't even answer that question. I just proved my point and all of the l.e. people know it too. Middle-aged crack wh**e just like mommy, who's collecting welfare, possibly on obabma care, lives in public housing collecting welfare checks, and completely obsesses about l.e. cause she has been in and out of jail, for pettycrimes such as prostitution, possession maybe other things. Like I said 20 + yrs on and I'm perfect where I am. I love doing what I do, and happy with what I do. Where as you...well I assume you are just a poor ,uneducated liberal who talks out of his ass anytime he gets. Really miss percy you serve no function in this world,,and are a pathetic excuse for a citizen. you are IRRELEVENT.

S.S. @ 1/1/2016 8:15 AM

your mother must be sooooooo proud of you. UH OH I forgot about your mother. I can say she's watching you from up high, but that wouldn't be accurate.

Percy @ 1/1/2016 10:52 AM

@ S.S.
Yes dear.

Do you know Joe Hoffman from the W. Mifflin PD?

You sound like you are the same person, he too believes he is perfect and is just about as profane and idiotic as you.
Do try to settle down.

Happy New Year!!!

percy you don't have a life. I guess this takes up all your time. I am who I say I am. The great southwest. So wrong again. I'm far from perfect, but I am a good officer and hve been the past 20 plus years. It's people like you that just trip me out. Without US this world today wouldn't excist. Yet you bash us. No way would you do our job. Like I said before your mother should have raised you better, but its too late for the 2 of you idiots.

Linda @ 2/26/2016 1:16 AM

Am I allowed to ask a question here, or is it just to argue ? I wanted to ask a question like I said and I came across this.

Linda @ 2/26/2016 1:22 AM

I wanted to ask a question and I came across this. Can I ask a question or is it just for arguing?
