Body Cameras

Image

The Franklin Borough Police Department has joined law enforcement agencies across the state and deployed body-worn cameras (BWC). The cameras will be used in accordance with the guidelines established by the New Jersey Attorney General. This technology is meant to improve public safety, enhance officer safety, assist with prosecution and case resolution, and further promote professionalism, integrity, and transparency.

BWC's will be mounted to an officer's uniform and will point away from the officer to capture images in the camera's field of vision. In addition, citizens who interact with police officers will be recorded on body camera footage.

Any questions regarding body-worn cameras can be directed to Lt. Nevin Mattessich at nmattessich@franklinpd.org or Capt. Seamus Geddis at sgeddis@franklinpd.org.
