The Ridgewood Police Department is excited to announce that we have joined the growing ranks of law enforcement agencies who are implementing body worn cameras (BWC). The cameras will be used in accordance with the guidelines established by the New Jersey Attorney General and the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office directive. Our officers will be using the Axon Body 3 camera, which is a small lightweight device, but with a wide field of view. The BWC will be mounted on an officer’s shirt, vest, or outmost garment and will point away from the officer in order to capture whatever is in the camera’s view. Citizen who interact with police officers could be recorded on the body cameras. Our hope is that by employing this technology, we will continue to build a positive relationship will all of our residents and those visiting and working in the Village.
