In accordance with New Jersey Attorney General Directive 2021-5, the Little Egg Harbor Police Department is hereby providing public notice that the Little Egg Harbor Police Department deploys Body Worn Camera technology for use by uniformed, and at times, plainclothes officers. This technology is invaluable to serve and protect our public as well as serving to protect our officers. The captured video has tremendous evidentiary and training value as well as protecting the integrity and the transparency of the Little Egg Harbor Police Department.
Generally, a Body Worn Camera (BWC) will be mounted in the chest area on an officer’s outermost garment. Pictures of the device currently in use, as well as a picture depicting the usual placement on an officer’s body, are shown below.
For more information on BWC regulations, please refer to New Jersey Attorney General Directive 2021-5, which can be found on the New Jersey Office of Attorney General website (www.njoag.gov).
