Welcome to the Small, Rural, and Tribal Body-Worn Camera Website.
Welcome to the world of body-worn cameras (BWC) for Small, Rural, and Tribal (SRT) law enforcement agencies.
We hope that this site provides you with timely, relevant, and useful information about body-worn cameras (BWCs).
The SRT micro-grant program is funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) and operated by Justice & Security Strategies, Inc. (JSS). The purpose of this initiative is to provide funds and technical support to small, rural, and tribal agencies to implement body-worn cameras.
Funding for the Small, Rural, and Tribal Body-Worn Camera program (SRT BWC) is now available. We have a two-step registration process.
Click anywhere here to begin registration and to access the application kit. The application deadline is on 02/17/23.
The SRT BWC program provides funds for body-worn cameras to:
1) any law enforcement department with 50 or fewer full-time sworn personnel;
2) rural agencies (those agencies within non-urban or non-metro counties); and
3) federally-recognized tribal agencies.
The development and creation of a BWC policy is an important aspect of any BWC program. It serves as the foundation for your program and is an inherent part of your implementation efforts. JSS and ASU have created a tool that will provide you with the basics for building that policy.
JSS provides access to the secure Grants Management portal that houses your micro-grant application and contract file materials. The items in this section address the requirements to successfully execute a federally funded grant program. Additional grant resources will be provided within the coming weeks.
