Trust Through Transparency...Burlington Police Officers Participate in Body Worn Camera Program
Body Worn Camera: An operational video or digital camera device, including a microphone, affixed to the uniform of an officer, positioned in a way that allows the camera or device to capture interactions the officer has with others. In most cases, if you have an interaction with a Burlington police officer, it will be recorded. The body worn camera will promote transparency and legitimacy of police encounters. We will use our body worn cameras to demonstrate to the community that our police officers act in a fair and just manner.
In a continued effort to maintain trust through transparency, the Burlington Police Department has equipped all sworn officers with body worn cameras.
