Body Worn Cameras
The Harding Township Police Department has implemented a new body worn camera program. As of April 1, 2023 we began equipping our Officers with body worn cameras. Body worn cameras are viewed as a valuable asset intended to assist in the prosecution of certain offenders by augmenting an Officer’s testimony with a video/audio recording of the incident. Additionally, this equipment will enable supervisors to conduct mandatory periodic reviews of Officer-citizen contacts for quality control purposes and aid in the investigation of citizen complaints.
These cameras will be used, as per the NJ Attorney General’s Guidelines, to capture video and audio recordings of police/citizen interactions. All uniformed Officers who are required to be equipped with body worn cameras will wear them on the front of their uniform.
The Harding Township Police Department is committed to providing the highest level of police service to the residents of Harding. The body worn camera program is another component to help us maintain the highest professional police standards possible.
