Body-Worn Camera Video Releases

Executive Order 14074, “Advancing Effective, Accountable Policing and Criminal Justice Practices to Enhance Public Trust and Public Safety,” requires that federal law enforcement agencies publicly post body-worn camera policies.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection is piloting a body-worn camera program for officers and agents throughout the United States. CBP's Incident-Driven Video Recording System Directive provides guidance for implementation throughout CBP. The policy went into effect in August of 2021. Throughout the pilot phase, and transition to regular use, the policy will be adhered to by all CBP employees.

In addition, CBP is committed to expeditious release of body worn camera footage consistent with CBP policy and the above referenced executive order. The precise timing of release may be impacted by a variety of factors including potential impacts to ongoing investigations.
