PRESS RELEASE - Body-Worn Camera Pilot Program
The Body-Camera Collaboration announces the launch of an estimated 90-day trial period for body-worn cameras (BWCs).  The pilot program will begin on July 27, 2016.  The BWCs will be deployed in Chalfont Borough, Doylestown Borough, New Britain Borough, and Warminster Township.


In October 2015, Central Bucks Regional Police Department was awarded a grant from The Office of Justice Programs, BJA to form a collaboration of eight law enforcement agencies in Bucks County to implement BWCs.   The Collaboration has met on a monthly basis to explore the suitability and feasibility of BWCs.  A community survey was conducted in December 2015 returning positive feedback from the public regarding the deployment of BWCs.  Research conducted included companies and equipment, best practices for storage of the data and a comprehensive protocol and policy for the application of BWCs.  The Collaboration consisted of representatives from each law enforcement agency and the Bucks County District Attorney’s office.


Once the trial phase has been completed and evaluated, the Collaboration will make adjustments, if any, and proceed to full deployment, in October 2016, which include the following jurisdictions:  Boroughs of Chalfont, Doylestown, and New Britain, Townships of Lower Southampton, Northampton, Plumstead, Warminster, Warrington, and the Bucks County Sheriff’s Department.

OPERATION I.D

CBRPD has launched a property identification program developed to aid in the prevention of crime and identification of personal property in the event that a loss occurs.

The program involves engraving property with an identifying number and displaying a CBRPD window decal to discourage burglary and theft and show your participation in the program.

Residents of the Boroughs of Chalfont, Doylestown, and New Britain wishing to participate in the program should come to the police station and fill out a form to borrow an engraver (free of charge) for a period of three days.  Keep an inventory list, in your possession, of all engraved items.

Once the engraver is returned, CBRPD will issue a window decal advising all items of value in your premises have been marked for positive identification for law enforcement agencies.

Stop by and pick up an engraver today!
