Body Camera Policy
In 2015, the city received $10,000 from the state to purchase 20 body cameras, but did not do so.
On December 29, 2020, Paterson started a 90-day trial program for the use of body-worn cameras.
Video policy will follow guidelines set by the New Jersey Attorney General's office.
As of November 2021, cameras have been issued to about 35% of approximately 400 officers. The city plans to use a federal grant to equip the rest of the department over the next few years.
