Body Worn Cameras
The Woodbury City Police Department is now utilizing Axon Body 2 body cameras in an effort to increase trust and transparency between the department and the community we serve in addition to our mission of providing accurate and detailed reports about complaints we receive and suspects we prosecute. These body cameras are worn by all of our uniformed patrol officers. Generally, the cameras are worn center mast in the middle of their chests or on their belt. Please reference the photo below of one of our officers wearing a body camera.
