Body Worn Cameras

What is a Body Worn Camera?

A Body-Worn Camera (BWC) is a small device used to capture audio, video, and photographs of police officer interactions with community members. 

Who wears a BWC?

BWCs are assigned to every sworn officer employed by BRPD.

 How is a BWC Worn?

The BWC used by BRPD, the Axon Body 2, should be worn in such a manner to maximize the video capture angle and to prevent, to the extent possible, blockage of the camera by the uniform or equipment.
