PUBLIC SAFETY: A new directive regarding the purchase of 1,000 body cameras for New Jersey State Police troopers and the establishment for uniform procedures in use-of-force investigations will be announced this morning by Acting Attorney General John J. Hoffman, law enforcement officials confirmed.
Hoffman has scheduled an 11 a.m. news conference in Trenton that his staff said will involve “several major statewide law enforcement initiatives aimed at promoting mutual accountability, transparency and public confidence in policing throughout New Jersey.”
A demonstration of the new equipment will be conducted, they said.
Also scheduled to attend are state Division of Criminal Justice Elie Honig, State Police Supt. Col. Rick Fuentes and law enforcement and community leaders from throughout New Jersey.
The cameras are to be bought in bundles. Combined with the necessary computer equipment, they’re expected to cost $1.5 million.
Training is to begin next month.
