A police department in Gloucester County has seen about a 90 percent drop in internal affairs complaints since it started using body cameras, according to a story on NJ.com.
In Paulsboro, the public perception of police has improved over the last four months since police began using the cameras, according to the news website.
"When you have body cameras and MVC (motor vehicle cameras) you're going to be able to dispel or differentiate the reality from the perception,” Chief Chris Wachter told NJ.com.
It cost the department $71,000 to fund the cameras for five years. The department has 14 full-time officers.
