Charlotte Police Foundation

Body Worn Cameras

Since 2014, the CMPF has donated $450,000 towards body worn cameras. CMPF’s initial funding was the catalyst in obtaining a $7 million dollar investment from the city to issue cameras to all patrol officers. More recently, CMPD deployed cameras to SWAT, the Violent Criminal Apprehension Team, other tactical units and all officers working secondary employment, making Charlotte the first major city to equip all officers with body worn cameras. CMPD has seen a 30% reduction in external complaints since the full launch of the program and supports the department’s goal of providing transparency to protect officers and the public.
