As technology becomes more frequent in daily lives as well as corrections, body worn cameras are the latest innovation to insert themselves. The Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction, inclusive of the Adult Parole Authority, was one of the first large community correction agencies to implement body worn cameras. This session will review the Ohio Adult Parole Authority's implementation of body worn cameras and ongoing use in community corrections. Distinct advantages such as officer safety will be discussed and reviewed. This session will also make agency policy makers aware of the dynamics in utilizing body worn cameras.
