Following in the footsteps of Cherry Hill, more South Jersey police departments are implementing body camera programs.

The New Jersey Attorney General’s Office announced grants totaling $566,000 to be distributed to 37 police departments in New Jersey. The grants, partially funded by the U.S. Department of Justice’s Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program, will be used to purchase body camera equipment.

Included in the distribution are Bordentown Township, Cinnaminson, Delanco, Eastampton, Elk Township, Mansfield Township, Mantua Township, Maple Shade, Medford and Wenonah.

“This new round of funding for body cameras will keep New Jersey in the vanguard nationally in using this technology, which promotes transparency in policing while protecting officers in their difficult and dangerous jobs,” Attorney General Christopher Porrino said in a statement.
