Body Camera Program
On Wednesday, February 13, 2019 members of the Bensalem Township Police Department’s Patrol Division will be equipped with body-worn cameras. Bensalem Police have teamed up with Axon, a global leader in law enforcement technologies, to implement the body-worn camera system. Bensalem Police will start the body-worn camera program with only a select number of patrol officers initially and plans are to equip the entire 60 member patrol division over the next few months.
The Bensalem Police Department is committed to a partnership with the community and body-worn cameras are another way to build trust and be transparent. Bensalem Police have utilized an in-car camera system for over a decade and will enhance that system to operate in compliance with the body-worn cameras.
