Body Worn Cameras Phase 1 Implementation

The Fairfax County Police Department continues with its implementation plan for phase one of the Body Worn Camera (BWC) program which will launch on May 1, 2020. All stakeholder employees for phase one are nearing completion of their training in the use of the BWC systems. This includes affected police staff, Fairfax County Office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney, Fairfax Public Defender Office, and court personnel.

It is important to note that year one of the three-year phased in project was funded in the previous FY 2020 Carryover Review as approved by the BOS. Phases 2 & 3 may be impacted by economic concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are ultimately committed to seeing the BWC through to full implementation.
