Local governments are quickly finding themselves at the political and fiscal epicenter of the debate over body-worn cameras.  Controversial and high-profile police-citizen encounters, some that are uploaded to social media even before they are reported on by the press, can propel governmental entities into a process of selecting and implementing body-worn cameras without proper preparation or planned funding.  It is imperative that the proper decisions are made about implementing a cost effective and adequate body-worn camera program in a public safety agency before a crisis occurs.  Hasty decisions made under community and media pressure can result in less than optimal results and most often with negative fiscal impact and/or negative community relations.

Local officials require objective, unbiased, information and insights based on experience that may not be available from the police department.  Body-worn camera purchases are an costly expenditure that require long-term foresight, effective planning and a collaborative effort between government and the police department.
