CPD Announces Use of Body-Worn Cameras

Today, the Chambersburg Police Department announces the launch of its Body-Worn Camera Program.  Officers will use the Body-Worn Cameras during their shifts while on calls for service or officer generated activities.  The department purchased the cameras from Watch Guard Motorola through a grant, in collaboration with Franklin County government, which was awarded by the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency. 

The Chambersburg Police Department is the first agency in Franklin County to obtain and deploy Body-Worn Cameras.  Chief Ron Camacho is pleased and optimistic that the use of this technology will further the department’s continued goal of transparency while also reinforcing the great work and effort of Chambersburg Police Officers.
