Body-Worn Cameras

Northwestern Police began exploring the use of body-worn cameras in April 2016, working in collaboration with key stakeholders across the University to ensure a thoughtful approach.

In June 2017, we began a 30-day pilot phase with five Northwestern police officers. The feedback provided from both the officers and our community members shaped our implementation in the fall.

We went live with body-worn cameras for all sworn personnel on February 1, 2018.

We greatly value your feedback on this and all Department of Safety and Security initiatives. If you have questions, comments, or would like additional information email University Police to submit your question or comment.
