Camden County Police Testing Body Cameras on Officers

"The Camden County Police Department has been testing body cameras for its officers for the past year, according to officials, with the chief hoping to acquire up to 100 cameras "as quickly as possible,'" as reported by Jason Laday of South Jersey Times.

"According to Camden County spokesman Dan Keashen, the police department has tested cameras from three companies so far, including Taser International, whose recording devices are currently used by officers in Evesham Township. The CCPD is expected to test cameras from a fourth company soon."

"The Camden County police already boast a $4.5 million network of rotating cameras, gunshot-sensitive microphones and surveillance towers throughout the city. Chief Scott Thomson has long been a proponent of body cameras, stating they could help protect both residents and officers."
