OCJS Grants Body Worn Camera Program

Body Worn Camera Program

Law enforcement agencies are increasingly using body-worn cameras to serve a multitude of functions: to improve evidence collection, to train officers, to strengthen officer performance and accountability, to enhance agency transparency, and to document and investigate encounters between police and the public. In 2021, at the request of Governor Mike DeWine, $10 million was set aside in the state budget to help outfit law enforcement officers across the state with body cameras, in an effort to achieve Governor DeWine’s goal “that most, if not all, law enforcement agencies in the state will establish a body camera program with the help of this grant funding.”
