Moorestown Police officers on patrol are equipped with body worn cameras. Building on our Department's emphasis on transparency and accountability, the cameras provide important evidence if an officer's actions are improper as well as provide protection for our officer's against false complaints. The deployment of the body worn cameras has shown to de-escalate encounters between officers and members of the public. The body worn cameras are deployed strictly following the guidelines issued by the Office of the New Jersey Attorney General. Moorestown was successful in obtaining a grant from the New Jersey Attorney General to offset 40% of the cost of this initiative.
