Grants to USA and territories law enforcement agencies, correctional agencies, and government agencies for equipment purchases and related training for police officers. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to support body-worn camera purchases, training, personnel expenses, and related technology costs such as infrastructure enhancements, redaction, and storage.
OJP is committed to advancing work that promotes civil rights and racial equity, increases access to justice, supports crime victims and individuals impacted by the justice system, strengthens community safety and protects the public from crime and evolving threats, and builds trust between law enforcement and the community. The purpose of the FY 2022 Body-worn Camera Policy and Implementation Program to Support Law Enforcement Agencies (BWCPIP-LEA) is to fund the purchase of body-worn cameras (BWCs) that are implemented as part of comprehensive BWC programs implemented in publicly funded law enforcement agencies (LEAs) or correctional agencies that perform law enforcement functions. In addition, the BWCPIP-LEA Program supports the refinement of existing BWC implementation operating in publicly funded operation through demonstration programs in which BWC implementation practice and operation have exhibited a demonstrable improvement in agency operations and that have a high likelihood of being replicated in other locations.
In order to both increase the number of BWCs deployed in law enforcement agencies across the United States and improve the efficacy and efficiency with which BWC programs are implemented, the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) has expanded its BWCPIP Program to five distinct categories:
