Howard County Executive Calvin Ball will announce a Body Worn Camera program for the Howard County Police Department (HCPD), State’s Attorney’s Office, and Sheriff’s Office to be implemented in Fiscal Year 2022. The press conference will be hosted on Wednesday March 24, at 11:00 a.m. in the George Howard Building in Ellicott City. The event will also be live-streamed on Facebook.
“Nationwide, we know that many communities are hurting and have faced injustice at the hands of those entrusted to protect and serve,” said Ball. “While we have not had issues in Howard County like those in other parts of the country, there is always work to be done to instill confidence and build relationships, especially within communities of color. Focusing on public safety and reinforcing public trust remains a priority of my Administration, and we’re pleased to be moving this popular program forward in Howard County.”
