CBRPD Body-Worn Camera Collaboration


CBRPD is one of 73 law enforcement agencies nationwide that will receive U.S. Department of Justice funding for body-worn cameras announced by the Obama administration on Monday, September 21, 2015. "We are pleased to be awarded this grant as the lead agency on behalf of nine Bucks County law enforcement agencies. This is a collaborative endeavor to improve public safety and public trust between police and citizens. We want to deliver a positive experience to our communities," said Chief James Donnelly of CBRPD.

CBRPD was awarded $52,805 in federal funds for the BWC Pilot Program on behalf of the collaboration. The collaboration's contribution will be $54,595 netting a total of 120 BWC's to be implemented by 2016. The Departments entered into an Intergovernmental Agreement tailored toward the funding and consists of the following Departments: CBRPD, Chalfont, Plumstead, Buckingham, Warrington, Warminster, Lower Southampton, Northampton, and the Bucks County Sheriff's Department. "This pilot program has the potential of affecting a population of over 626,000 crossing all socioeconomic boundaries as well as age, race, and ethnicity," stated Sheriff Edward Donnelly of Bucks County Sheriff's Department.


The collaboration will be meeting on a regular basis to establish a plan of implementation, training procedures, and operational policy that is consistent with BJA guidelines prior to the purchase of cameras. Chief Bill Wiegman of Lower Southampton Police said, "In addition to improving the high-quality public service expected of our officers, video footage will provide powerful demonstrative evidence for successful prosecution, officer training, reduction in citizen complaints, and prevent unfounded complaints."


POLICE REACH OUT TO SENIORS

CBRPD would like to assist seniors or any person who may be medically/physically challenged during an unusual inclement weather event, power outages or natural disaster. Police officers will be assigned during an event to make home visits, as manpower and circumstances permit, to see if residents are in need of any special assistance. Please call us today 215-345-4143 and register yourself or a family member that could benefit from our assistance.
