New Jersey Transit has issued body cameras for every member of its 263-member police force.The cameras are aimed at providing additional transparency when officers interact with the public, NJ Transit spokeswoman Lisa Torbic said in an email. The body-worn cameras also can help de-escalate situations, minimize confrontations, assist in evidence collection and reduce civilian complaints, Torbic added. The cost of the body-camera program was nearly $2 million.In January 2016, the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority announced it also equipped its police force with body cameras.
