CBP to Expand Camera Review to Include Testing of Body-worn Cameras

U.S. Customs and Border Protection will be expanding the agency’s camera review to include testing of new body-worn cameras in operations such as checkpoints, vessel boarding and interdictions, training academies and outbound operations at ports of entry.

“While CBP already makes extensive use of cameras in the border environment, technology is constantly evolving and we are committed to testing durable new cameras that may work with CBP’s operational requirements,” said CBP Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske. “We will develop sound policies to reflect technology requirements, privacy concerns, training implications, union negotiations, and funding.”
