Body Worn Camera Training
The Riverside Township Police Department has issued a Standard Operating Procedure that each officer will follow in accordance with the New Jersey Attorney General's Law Enforcement Directive Regarding Police Body Worn Cameras (BWCs) and Stored BWC Recordings # 2015-1, furthermore our Standard Operating Procedure regarding the use of Body Worn Cameras has been reviewed and approved by the Burlington County Prosecutors Office to ensure compliance.

We look forward to using the BWC’s not only to ensure police transparency but to also protect our officers against fraudulent complaints and frivolous lawsuits against the Township of Riverside.

We thank you all for your continued support.
