Over the last four plus weeks, the Trenton Police Department has been testing and evaluating police worn body cameras. Chief Wright advises that “Body cameras promote public trust, transparency, accountability, and help gather evidence. Additionally, they help to exonerate officers from malicious complaints and help to provide input for needed training”.

In order to ensure a more comprehensive community approach towards the possible implementation of the body cameras, Chief Wright has commissioned a community based, ten person committee to explore the need for the cameras and to help develop policy and procedures for their use if the committee establishes a need for such equipment.

Chief Wright advises the committee is made up of two prosecutors, two Trenton Police Officers, and six community members. This group is slated to meet four times with the fourth meeting being a final proposal meeting. The group will answer the following questions:

The Police Body Camera Steering Committee will need to answer the following questions;

1. Is there a need for Police Body Cameras in the Trenton Police Department?

2. If the committee establishes a need, what make/brand/type/model of police body camera should be purchased?

3. If the committee establishes a need, how many should be purchased?

4. If the committee establishes a need, what incidents should be recorded by members of the Trenton Police Department?

5. If the committee establishes a need and develops a proposed make/model/brand/type, what is the final cost for the number of those cameras proposed?

6. If the committee establishes a need, how can the police department gain funding for these during the current budget cycle so that they can be implemented in an expeditious manner?

The Trenton Police Department Body Camera Steering Committee meetings will be open to the public and at the beginning of each meeting will be a public comments section. Public Comments and input are welcome and should focus on the questions posed to the committee. The meetings are scheduled as follows:

Thursday evenings at the Grundy County Law Enforcement Center at 5:00-6:00 pm.

The meetings are scheduled for the following dates:

Thursday, September 4th, 5:00 pm
Thursday, September 11th, 5:00 pm
Thursday, September 18th, 5:00 pm
Thursday, September 25th, 5:00 pm (Final Meeting)

Meetings should last no more than 1 to 1.5 hours.
