State Fiscal Year 2022 Law Enforcement Body-Worn Camera Program Availability of Grant Funds (AGF)

The Executive Office of Public Safety and Security’s Office of Grants and Research will make available $4,000,000 in funding for law enforcement to establish and implement body-worn camera (BWC) programs. Grants funds may be used to create a BWC program or expand an existing BWC program.

UPDATE (July 7, 2021)OGR has received several questions concerning the time constraint in receiving collective bargaining approval by the BWC Program application deadline. Please note that on page 4 of the Availability of Grant Funds (AGF), it states that applicants have 6 months after award execution (~October 2021) to begin implementation. This time period allows departments adequate time to receive the proper approval and documentation. If a department is unable to develop a mandatory wear policy and receive collective bargaining approval by the application deadline, then the applicant department must mention, within their application, the ongoing negotiations and status of receiving collective bargaining approval (verbal approval at time of application submission is acceptable).  The project implementation timeline within the application must also indicate when the department anticipates receiving a formal, written commitment of approval (no later than 6 months after execution of the award contract).  This instruction is not clear in the original posted documents related to this solicitation, therefore, modified documents with clearer language are posted below.
