The Monmouth County Sheriff’s Officers deployed in the criminal fugitive warrants section of the Law Enforcement Division were equipped with body worn cameras, effective today, Sheriff Shaun Golden announced. The Sheriff’s Office joins 17 other law enforcement agencies throughout Monmouth County that are equipped with the cameras purchased through a grant from the New Jersey Attorney General’s Department of Law and Public Safety and administered by the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office.
“These body worn cameras will build upon the public trust that sheriff’s officers and our partners in law enforcement have in communities, and, enhance the safety of the residents we serve throughout Monmouth County,” said Sheriff Golden. “In addition to the BWC’s being able to hold all accountable at a scene, they can also help capture quality evidence, recognize officer behavior and decrease complaints filed against members of law enforcement.”Click here for reuse options!
