Use of Body-Worn Cameras by Federally Deputized Task Force Officers   [open pdf - 211KB]

From the Document: "The Department of Justice (Department or DOJ) permits the use of body worn cameras (BWCs) by task force officers (TFOs) on federal task forces. This policy provides the parameters for the use of BWCs by TFOs to the extent that a state or local law enforcement agency requires their use by its officers during federal task force operations. DOJ law enforcement agencies may issue internal standard operating procedures to implement TFO use of BWCs consistent with this policy. For purposes of this policy, the term, 'TFO BWC recordings,' refers to audio and video recordings and associated metadata from TFO BWCs made while the TFO is working under federal authority, including state and local warrants adopted by a federal agency."
