Vancouver Police launch second camera platform testing and evaluation pilot07/07/22

Vancouver, Wash. – On July 11, the Vancouver Police Department will begin the second testing and evaluation (T&E) pilot for a body and in-car camera platform. Five officers will be equipped with body worn cameras and five vehicles will be equipped with front-facing and rear-passenger compartment cameras. The T&E process for this platform is expected to last 30-60 days.

In December 2021, the Vancouver Police Department concluded the first T&E of a camera platform. Based on that T&E, a revised request for proposal (RFP) was developed, which included additional operational needs and federal grant terms and conditions. The City is anticipating a $1.5M federal grant award this fall.

Once the current T&E pilot is completed, the RFP committee, which includes two community representatives and representatives from the City Attorney’s Office, Vancouver Police Department, and the City’s Information Technology Department, will meet to complete the RFP process.
