Body Cameras

Auto-trigger technology automatically activates one or more Body Cameras, relying on several different keying mechanisms. An auto-trigger mechanism typically activates a Body Cameras automatically based on certain actions, including the following:

  • When an officer pulls a weapon from a holster
  • When a cruiser moves over a specific speed
  • When a cruiser runs with lights or siren
  • When multiple Body Cameras are within close proximity to an activated camera
  • When a cruiser door is opened
  • When an officer is running
  • When an officer issues specific verbal commands
  • When an officer enters a specific geographic area

Restorative Justice

The mission of court diversion programs is to engage community members in responding to the needs of crime victims, the community, and those who violated the law, holding the latter accountable in a manner that promotes responsible behavior

  • Ensure that the applicant acknowledges responsibility for violating the law.
  • Focus on the harm experienced by the victim, the person who violated the law, and the community.
  • Show respect and empathy for all parties.
  • Ensure opportunities for victims to have a voice.
  • Provide opportunities for the person who violated the law to repair the harm and to learn how to address the underlying causes for the violation, empowering him/her to make more positive life choices.
  • Actively involve the community in the response to the harm experienced by all parties.
  • Develop contract obligations that relate to repairing the harm, are achievable, and, where appropriate, address the underlying causes for the behavior.
  • Ensure by the end of the process, that the person who violated the law has had the opportunity to develop an understanding of how his/her actions affected others.


Consent Waivers

Consent searches are a legitimate means of obtaining evidence, but officers must recognize that since a consent search is a warrantless search, it is presumed illegal until the state can prove it to be constitutionally legal, primarily through testimony of the officer obtaining the consent. The state does this by showing that the person giving consent had authority to consent to the search and that the person also voluntarily consented to the search.
