West New York Police Department and the use of Body-Worn Video Cameras

The West New York Police Department is committed to transparency and accountability through the use of body-worn video cameras by our officers. As part of our dedication to effective policing and in alignment with guidelines set forth by the New Jersey Attorney General, these cameras are being deployed to enhance public trust and ensure the safety of both our officers and citizens.

Body Worn Camera (BWC) footage functions similar to recordings from cell phone cameras, where the cameras, affixed to an officer’s uniform, will capture interactions within their field of vision. This proactive measure aims to strengthen community partnerships and uphold the highest standards of law enforcement practices.

By interacting with our officers, individuals acknowledge the potential recording of such interactions for transparency and public safety purposes.
