The Newtown Police Commission has signed off on guidelines for the use of body-worn cameras.  Officers will soon have the  surveillance device and training will be held.  A 9-page policy document is based on a model policy from the state’s Police Officer Standards and Training Council.   Bodycams and related computer equipment, delivered this summer, will bolster dashcams already in use.  A state grant of more than $69,000 will fully reimburse Newtown for the cost.   The recorded material would be used by police in their investigations and could be introduced as evidence in court.  Freedom of Information requests for the digital files will be processed by the police chief’s office.
