Body-Worn Cameras Funding Opportunity Through the Bureau of Justice (BJA)

The Justice Department recently announced that BJA released $7.65 million in a competitive microgrant solicitation that will fund body-worn cameras (BWCs) to any law enforcement department with 50 or fewer full-time sworn personnel, rural agencies (those agencies within non-urban or non-metro counties), and federally recognized tribal agencies.

Funds must be used to purchase or lease body-worn cameras and may include expenses reasonably related to BWC program implementation. Funding can be used to support pilot BWC programs, establish new BWC implementation, or expand existing programs.

Applications for funding are to be submitted through the Small, Rural, and Tribal Body-Worn Camera website. The submission deadline is August 31, 2021.

Read the full press release from the Department of Justice for more information.

Please Note: PGR is not involved with this microgrant and is only passing along the information.
