Pennsylvania State Police Launch Body Camera Initiative

To make sure departments all over the state are prepared to implement body cameras, the Pennsylvania State Police are starting a pilot program. As part of a 60-day pilot project, soldiers in Carlisle are currently equipped with those cameras.

The cameras will safeguard both the general public and the law enforcement personnel wearing them, according to Colonel Christopher Paris, a state police commissioner.

“The cameras can also be used to protect citizens and troopers both against false claims of misconduct or abuse,” Paris said.

The department uses 18 cameras, which are passed between troopers during shift changes, to save money.

Body-worn cameras will be used at all 87 of the state’s patrol stations after the two-month trial period.
