Issue: Body-Worn Camera Systems

SIA members include the world’s leading manufacturers of video security products, many of which are driving technology innovation by working with law enforcement to develop and field body-worn camera systems tailored to meet local needs.

SIA Position:

SIA supports S. 1280, the Safe Officers and Safer Citizens Act (Sen. Tim Scott, R-SC and Sen. Cory Booker, D-NJ) which provides $100 million in annual assistance to law enforcement agencies to implement body-worn camera systems, requiring well-defined use policies while leaving specific technical configurations up to local decision makers.
