GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. (NEWS10) — The Great Barrington Police Department has announced that by the end of the week of September 25, the bodycam program rollout will be complete. All officers will be wearing body-worn cameras to help document investigations and incidents.

This department’s body-worn camera program aims to ensure that audiovisual recordings provide an accurate depiction of events to provide the best possible evidence and documentation. Capturing digital audio-video evidence for criminal, civil, and traffic-related court cases can assist in a successful prosecution and help victims of crimes. The police department can also use the data to identify what training is needed for officers to improve the quality of interactions between officers and the members of the public.
