Body Cameras coming to Palm Beach County soon: Sheriff Ric Bradshaw Announces

Body Cameras coming to Palm Beach County soon: Sheriff Ric Bradshaw Announced

Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office announced on Oct. 23 plans to move toward getting body cameras for all deputies. 

Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw said he has a plan “to install body cameras for the thousands of deputies who patrol our community and work to keep our neighborhoods safe,” in an email. “This technology is a game changer for your Sheriff’s office.”

Already, 960 patrol vehicles have been outfitted with cameras and now record every stop and interaction. The next step is outfitting deputies with body cameras – part of that step is ensuring the technology and infrastructure are in place to move forward with body cameras safely and reliably.  

Body cameras are “technology that will protect everyone,” Sheriff Bradshaw said in a promotional video. “Soon, we’ll have body cameras on the deputies to protect every citizen and officer with a visual record.”

“We have worked hard to reduce crime and keep you safe,” Sheriff Bradshaw said in an email. “We are working just as hard to keep your trust.” 

Body Cameras in Palm Beach County vs Broward County

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office is about 4 years behind the Broward County Sheriff’s Office in South Florida in terms of getting Body Cameras. 

When BSO got body cameras in early 2016, the then Sheriff Scott Israel said body cameras in Broward were the right thing to do and said “We are a transparent agency…. We are not afraid of what goes on out in the street.” 

The plan piloted with 50 deputies across North Lauderdale, Central Broward, Pompano Beach and Deerfield Beach wearing cameras but had plans to extend to road patrol, K-9 units, motorcycles and special operations.

Current Broward County Sheriff Gregory Tony also says body cameras play an important role. All BSO deputies are required to activate cameras when going out on a call for service and when engaging with civilians.

I had an unfortunate situation with a family member that lead to my arrest and being charged with DV Battery. This was the first time I had ever been arrested so I was very nervous and afraid of what was going to happen to me. After talking with Adam I decided to retain him and let me tell you this was the BEST decision I could have ever made. Adam made me feel so comfortable and confident that everything will turn out the best in my favor. He is professional, ethical and supportive. He was always available too answer any questions or concerns.Not to mention, his team at the office is awesome they are so friendly and welcoming. Anytime I had a question when I called the office they were able to guide me in the rightdirection. They always were in contact with me with any information or updates regarding my case. Adams team is GREAT!Adam delivered, my case was DISMISSED. So if you want an attorney the is gonna fight for you and get the job done retain the BEST there is Adam Rossen!!!

Adam Rossen and the team at Rossen Law took great care in handling my case. They are very professional, and get the job done. I was particular relieved to see just how much empathy they showed with me, and how effortless it was to be their client.I literally visited them twice. My initial consultation, and then to pickup the final docs. I have nothing but great things to say about these folks, and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks Guys.

I had an amazing experience with The Rossen Law Firm. The staff were very professional. Attorney Susan Lawson went above and beyond working on my case. We were thoroughly prepared for trial. Mrs. Lawson reviewed hours of body and dash camera footage multiple times and aggressively performed depositions on witnesses and law enforcement.The final outcome for me was the state dropped my case, due to the great work Susan and the Rossen team performed. I didn’t even need to go to trial.This law firm does not play around. They pay attention to detail and they FIGHT FOR YOU!Thank you Adam, team, and a special thank you to Susan for your amazing work! I really appreciate you.

My experience with Rossen Law Firm was excellent. From the consultation to the end.. My attorney Susan Lawson gave my son's case all the time and attention that was needed to be successful in court. She was confident during all the court proceedings. My favorite part was when she said we are family, never once my son and I were treated other then that. I very much appreciate the knowledge and support I received through Rossen Law Firm.
