Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Connecticut municipalities and universities to reimburse the costs of body-worn cameras for law enforcement agencies and university police forces. Eligible costs include personal recording devices, services for retaining video recordings, and data storage equipment.

Public Act 17-225, An Act Concerning Camera and Recording Devices and Equipment Used by
Police, adds the following clarifications and eligible components for reimbursement:
- Adds eligibility for electronic defense weapon recording equipment (e.g., "taser cams”). This is not an electronic defense weapon replacement program.
- Adds eligibility for any municipality making a first-time purchase of one or more dashboard
cameras with a remote audio recorder. This is not a dashboard camera replacement program.
- Adds eligibility for body worn recording equipment for constables, police officers or other
persons who perform criminal law enforcement duties under the supervision of a resident state trooper serving such municipality, and digital data storage devices or services. (Resident State Troopers will be equipped with body worn recording equipment by DESPP - and not through this local reimbursement grant program)
