Do ACCPD officers wear body cameras?

Yes.  It is ACCPD policy (Directive 3.05) to equip its officers with body-worn cameras and that officers will use body-worn cameras to record their interactions with the public.  Body-worn camera videos are retained in compliance with applicable Georgia Record Retention Schedules for local governments.  Upon request, ACCPD makes copies of its body-worn camera videos available to the public in compliance with the Georgia Open Records Act.

Additionally, supervisors are required to conduct monthly inspections of randomly selected body-worn camera videos for officers within their chains of command to assess officers’ performance and ensure compliance with department policies, standards, and training.
