For immediate release

The Clayton Police Department is implementing a new body camera pilot program starting in October 2016. Police Officers will begin recording audio/visual interactions between police and citizens. Body cameras are viewed as a valuable asset intended to assist department officers in the prosecution of certain offenders by augmenting an officer’s testimony with a video/audio record of the incident. Additionally, this equipment will enable department administrators to conduct periodic reviews of officer-citizen contacts for quality control purposes and aid in the investigation of citizen complaints.

The Clayton Police Department was able to obtain a grant that made it possible to purchase body worn cameras. After much testing and evaluation the Clayton Police Department has selected the L3 Mobile Vision Body Vision XV Body Worn Camera.  Please see L-3 website for full details on the camera.

Uniformed Clayton Police Officers will wear the camera near or at the center of their chest on the outer most layer of clothing. Plain clothes officers may wear the camera on their belt or other outer layer of clothing.  The camera is black and is about 3 inches in length by 2 inches in width.  The camera is activated when the slide is pushed open revealing a green indicator.

As the Chief of Police, I am committed to providing the highest level of police service to the residents of the Borough of Clayton.   The body worn camera program is another component to help us maintain the highest professional police standards available.  In implementing the body worn camera program it demonstrates not only my commitment to the community, but also the commitment of the brave, dedicated officers who day in and day out serve our citizens.

It is an honor to serve this community and thank you again for the continued support of our police department.

Sincerely,

Chief Andrew Davis

Clayton Police Department
