RPD Uniformed Officers Now Equipped With Body Cameras
ROBBINSVILLE, NJ - (March 23, 2017) - As of April 1, 2017, all uniformed officers of the Robbinsville Township Police Department are equipped with body cameras.
All uniform officers will be required to wear the L3 Body Vision XV 24 hours a day, seven days a week while on duty. The RPD will comply the guidelines and directives set forth by the New Jersey Attorney General's regarding activation and de-activation.
"We continue to look for ways to foster the trust and relationships we have developed within the community," Robbinsville Police Chief Chris Nitti said. "The use of in-car cameras has proven to be a tremendous asset to the police department and we are very excited to introduce the body cameras to our growing list of tools to better protect both the public and our officers."
The 30 cameras feature pre-event recording, 110 degree field of view display and extended
battery life. The Body Vision XV can record up to nine hours of continuous high-definition video via 32 GBs of internal storage.
"It's never been more difficult to be a police officer than it is today," said Township Mayor and Director of Public Safety Dave Fried. "These cameras will benefit both the officer and the citizens they encounter by providing an accurate account of what transpired during a particular call. This is a terrific investment in our community."
