FAIRFAX, Va. (WDVM)– The Fairfax County Police Department has completed their body-worn camera phase 2 plan.
The department first initiated its plan back in April of 2020. Fast forward to now, the county has completed its deployment. According to officials, officers from different stations are now trained and equipped to fully utilize these body-worn cameras.
