Sheriff Jean Stanfield announced today the implementation of body worn cameras for her officers at the Burlington County Sheriff’s Office. The Sheriff’s department will begin phasing in use of the body worn cameras effective October 31, 2016. The body worn cameras will be mounted to an officer’s uniform at the chest, shoulder, or waist area.The cameras will point away from the officer and will capture images in the camera’s field of vision. Residents who interact with officers will now be recorded on body camera footage.The use of body worn video camera technology will improve public safety, enhance officer safety, assist with prosecution and case resolution, and further promote professionalism, integrity and transparency.
For any questions regarding the department's implementation of body worn cameras please contact the Sheriff’s Department at (609) 265-5127.
