Hillsboro Police Department employees will host community meetings on May 15 and 22 to discuss the implementation of the body-worn cameras. The Police Department will utilize a $217,500 federal grant to research and establish a body-worn camera program that enhances police officer interactions with the community, continues to build trust and demonstrates the department's commitment to transparency.
The two meetings provide a forum for community members to ask questions, share concerns or voice support for the body-worn camera program. The use of body-worn cameras will document the community-minded policing work that officers do each day, and increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the judicial process through video and audio documentation.
