Rockwall Police Department: Body-worn Cameras
|Agency||Rockwall Police Department|
In 2017, the Rockwall Police Department received a grant from the governor of Texas to outfit every patrol officer with body-worn cameras. In 2018, RPD switched from Coban to GETAC-brand cameras. The city's 2020 budget included $47,000 for GETAC-brand BWCs.

Many law enforcement agencies require officers to attach body-worn cameras to their chests or shoulders to capture interactions with suspects and the public. Some cameras stream live and can be combined with face recognition technology.
