The Bozeman Police Department is excited to be moving forward with the implementation of our Body Worn Camera (BWC) program. Body Worn Cameras are becoming industry standard across the country and are an important tool for providing transparency, accountability, and evidence when officers are taking law-enforcement action or responding to a call for service.

The City of Bozeman implemented a rigorous Request for Proposal process while searching for the best BWC solution, and Getac Video Solutions has been selected as the vendor. We are now in the beginning stages of updating our “Recording” Policy to incorporate BWC’s, addressing concerns such as privacy rights and other important topics. In this effort, we are asking the community for any thoughts, comments, concerns or experiences you may have as it pertains to BWC’s.

BWC's can be a police officer’s small but important technological partner. BWC's are mobile audio and video capture devices that allow officers to record what they see and hear. Devices can be attached to various body areas, including the head, by helmet, glasses or other means, or to the body by pocket, badge or other means of attach­ment (such as in-car on the dash). They have the capability to record officer interactions that previously could only be captured by in-car or interview room camera systems.
