Body-Worn Cameras

For more than a decade, the Edina Police Department has utilized in-squad camera systems which have proven to be an excellent tool for collecting evidence, documenting encounters, and providing enhanced transparency and accountability.  The body-worn cameras integrate with the in-squad camera systems, significantly expanding the department’s capability to capture video and sound from virtually all police interactions.  Body-worn cameras were deployed by the department in December 2020 and are now in use by all uniformed police officers.
