CU Boulder police now using body-worn cameras

Daily Camera (Boulder): The University of Colorado Boulder Police Department has become the latest Boulder County law enforcement agency to equip officers with body-worn cameras.

The department, which had been looking at the technology for years, said the move was made for the safety of the public and officers.

“Body-worn cameras are an important tool for our officers and our community,” CU Boulder police Chief Doreen Jokerst said in a statement. “The use of these cameras strengthens both transparency and accountability for our officers. And it can also de-escalate intense situations to better ensure safety of the public and our officers.”

CU Boulder police spokesman Scott Pribble said the department worked on a soft rollout this summer so all 39 officers received training before being deployed with the Axon body cameras.
