Body Worn Cameras 

The Newton Police Department equips each of its uniformed police officers with a body worn camera. Body-worn cameras are a valuable asset intended to document evidence and witness/suspect statements, improve Officer training and performance, prevent and resolve citizen complaints and strengthen accountability and public trust. Good police work will benefit from such recordings and any improper police work will be discovered before it becomes a larger problem.

The body worn camera shown in the above photo is the same model utilized by our department. A green tab on the front of the camera indicates when the camera is activated and recording. It is typically worn on the front of the Officer's ballistic vest as shown above, or their outermost garment such as a jacket.
