Provincetown is the newest community to adopt a body-worn camera program for its police department. Town Manager Alex Morse says it will go a long way to insuring accountability and transparency within the police department.
“I want to thank the department for taking the initiative to implement cameras as part of the Town’s commitment to greater transparency and accountability for our police,” said Town Manager Alex B. Morse. “I believe this will help build trust within the community, strengthen officer performance, improve staff accountability and will further enhance the professional standards upheld by our department.
Morse says he expects to have all officers trained and on the streets with the camera by December 1st.
