Ringwood Police Department Body Worn Camera Program

Effective September 1, 2021, the Ringwood Police will be using body worn cameras, in compliance with New Jersey Attorney General Guidelines.  For uniformed patrol officers, the BWC will be positioned on the outer clothing and placed within the upper center chest area. Officers not assigned to patrol duties may be wearing the BWC’s on their belt. 

Law enforcement agencies across New Jersey will be using body worn cameras in a variety ways; to enhance agency transparency, to strengthen officer performance and accountability, to improve evidence collection, to document encounters between police and the public, and to investigate and resolve complaints and officer involved incidents.
