NJ Transit police get body cams

NJ Transit’s police department has equipped its 263 officers with body cameras to use when they are on patrol.

“Body-worn cameras provide a means for additional transparency when police officers have interactions with the public,” said NJ Transit spokesman Jim Smith.

The camera deployment, which cost NJ Transit $2 million, complies with a 2015 directive from the state attorney general’s office.  Link to full story in NJ.com.
