The Mount Arlington Police Department is proud to join the growing ranks of law enforcement agencies that deployed body-worn video cameras on police officers. Body-Worn Cameras are a great tool that can be used to improve both trust and accountability. The cameras are used in accordance with the guidelines established by the New Jersey Attorney General, the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office and the Mount Arlington Police Department written directive.
Mount Arlington Police officers will utilize Body-Worn Cameras (BWCs) to assist them in the performance of their duties by providing an accurate and unbiased recorded account of an incident. These BWC’s will be mounted to the exterior of an officer’s uniform and will point away from the officer to capture images in the camera’s field of vision. Citizens who interact with police officers may be recorded on body camera footage in accordance with the applicable guidelines and directives established governing Body-Worn Cameras.
The Mount Arlington Police Department proudly serves the Borough of Mount Arlington and its more then 5,000 residents. The department consists of comprehensive patrol and detective divisions.

This service will only be conducted by officers who possess an up to date certification. Appointments can be made by calling the Police Department during normal business hours.
