Public Body Worn Camera Videos

The Burlington Police Department places value on transparency and professionalism. The Department is a trauma Informed police agency and concerned with the psychological welfare of everyone in our community.  Body Worn camera footage can include upsetting or traumatic images.  

Body worn cameras work in a unique way to capture video for evidentiary purposes.  When an officer turns on the camera, it immediately begins to record audio and video of the current event.  It also goes back and captures 30 seconds of video only that temporarily records in a buffer space.  That first 30 seconds of video plays at the beginning of each recording without audio. This is a standard of function of body worn cameras.

Body worn Camera footage is released pursuant to a Superior Court Order. Learn more about the City of Burlington's body worn cameras.
