Activation of Body-worn Cameras without Responder Manipulation Fact Sheet

Body-worn cameras worn by law enforcement officers improve transparency and promote added accountability during police interactions with the public such as traffic stops and arrests. Yet, they are particularly useful for capturing and recording “unusual situations.” In response to growing demand from police departments and increasing concern from the public, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) is working with Hitron Technologies, Inc. (HTI) to develop and pilot body-worn cameras that can activate without the user manually turning on the camera.
