Body Worn Camera Project

In October of 2015, the Twin Falls Police Department was awarded a matching funds grant from the Department of Justice, for the implementation of Body Worn Cameras (BWC). We looked for insight from our community and strategic partners to help develop policy and procedures. During 2016, the City of Twin Falls began a competitive bidding process to meet the Department’s needs with BWC’s. Axon was awarded the bid and full implementation of the 60 Axon Body 2 Body Worn Camera's was completed spring 2017.
