Troy Police to Launch Body Camera Pilot Program



Mayor Patrick Madden announced the City of Troy Police Department will begin testing body-worn camera devices beginning next month in the Collar City. A limited number of officers will begin wearing cameras to help determine next steps for the full deployment of a body-worn camera program for the entire department.
 
Mayor Madden said, “Implementation of a pilot body-worn camera program is part of the Troy Police Department’s ongoing modernization as a 21st century law enforcement agency. This process will help guide the department’s next steps in a larger deployment of new technologies to help officers address the challenges of modern policing. We appreciate the thorough & collaborative approach of Chief Owens to move this process forward, and thank the officers who assisted in developing the policy and assessed practical use during the preliminary phases of the body camera program.”
 
Police Chief Brian Owens said, “Community policing is at the core of the department’s mission to serve and protect the residents, families and businesses of Troy. The launch of a pilot program to assess the functionality of a body-worn camera program will provide valuable insight on how best to deploy these new law enforcement tools to assist in this effort.”
 
In 2018, the Troy Police Department was awarded funding through the New York State Office of the Attorney General’s CAMS program to purchase body-worn cameras. Department leadership and command staff worked with Troy police officers and city administration to develop a policy for the deployment of a body-worn camera program in the community.
