Body Worn Camera Pilot Program

Body Worn Camera Pilot Project

The Bureau has completed 15 community meetings and is in the process of drafting the Policy to be used during the pilot test.  Once drafted, the policy will be negotiated with the PPA and PPCOA and then reviewed by the Stakeholders Group and released for public input prior to being presented to City Council.

The ordinance requesting the release of the Request for Proposals (RFP) has been postponed and we will update you once it is back on the agenda for City Council.

We are also brainstorming ideas for performance measures and survey questions for both officers and the community.  If you have any recommendations, feel free to email them to us at bwcfeedback@portlandoregon.gov.
