Body-Worn Camera Program

** 6/9/2020 Update **

The Richmond Heights Police Department is pleased to announce that as of Monday, 6/8/2020, our Body-Worn Camera (BWC) program has been fully implemented.  All uniformed officers have been trained and are now wearing their assigned BWCs.  Our policy can be found on our BWC page located at the link at the bottom of this announcement.

 


** 3/20/2020 **

The Richmond Heights Police Department will soon begin implementing a body-worn camera (BWC) program.   The use of BWCs will be an invaluable tool to aid the department in accurately documenting our officer’s interactions with the public while maintaining our commitment to transparency.

For more information on the RHPD body-worn camera program, please visit our BWC page at:
