Mays Landing-  The Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office is proud to announce the implementation of body worn cameras for its Detectives. The body worn cameras will be utilized during pre-planned law enforcement operations. The body camera selected and deployed by the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office is Digital Ally FirstVu Pro HD body worn cameras.

The Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office believes that the use of these cameras will significantly benefit both the community and our detectives. Detectives will be able to document their point of view more accurately by reviewing the incidents for details rather than relying solely on memory recall. In addition, this added benefit will certainly enhance accountability and preparation for court cases.

Body Worn Cameras are certainly a powerful tool that can assist law enforcement and at the same time give the community a better understanding of what happened during an encounter. However, we know that no technology is a perfect answer to all situations; therefore cameras should not be considered the only source of detail recollection. Body-worn cameras do have limitations that need to be understood and considered when evaluating the recordings, however we believe the community and the detectives who work to improve the quality of life here will benefit from their use.

For added accountability, supervisors also will be able to review the videos captured by the body cameras to assess how detectives interact with citizens and, if necessary, tailor their training programs to improve how those officers work in the field.
