A Market Survey on Body Worn Camera Technologies
National Institute of Justice (NIJ), 2016
The National Institutes of Justice (NIJ) sought to collect information on existing body-worn camera (BWC) technologies. This paper provides the methodology for developing the market survey and results from the market survey. From this market survey, the following was uncovered: 1) there are many more vendors now that sell BWC products as compared to a previous market survey from 2014; 2) the incorporation by vendors of new technological BWC features prompts the strong need for clear policies; and 3) this is an evolving area of law and some legal issues are currently unclear with regard to BWCs. This market survey presents an overview of the technologies available at the time of data collection.
Access background context for BWCs; methodology for developing the market survey; compiled results from the market survey; and a summary of information in A Primer on Body Worn Camera Technologies.
