Plot Synopsis

Combining body camera footage with first-hand accounts, BODY CAM is a one-hour docuseries that gives viewers their own eyewitness look at the life-or-death instant decisions of policework, as told by officers' own body camera footage. Each 60-minute episode tells multiple stories of those who vowed to protect and serve in unflinching detail -- from domestic disputes to ambushes and traffic stops gone dangerously awry. Each story transports viewers headfirst into the reality of law enforcement, seeing the world as they see it from the moment they get the call from dispatch. Between body camera and dashcam footage, dispatch and radio transmissions with additional officers on scene, viewers get an authentic, front-row seat as the pursuit intensifies. After weaving interviews with responding officers to provide context throughout, each story ends with emotional interviews with those who lived through the events, as they provide additional insight to the life-changing, sometimes tragically fatal, moments.

In the series premiere, a domestic dispute call in Uniontown, OH turns into a violent shoot-out, leaving Sgt David White fighting for his life. The episode ends in Glendale, OH, when rookie Josh Helling is forced to pull his weapon on a busy highway when a pedestrian unexpectedly pulls a knife. Additional stories covered this season include: a domestic dispute in Deltona, FL escalates into an armed siege as a mother narrowly escapes with a gunshot wound that leaves her children hostage inside the house with the shooter; a brutal crime is caught on camera, sparking a manhunt for a vicious killer in Newport News, VA; serving an arrest warrant to a sex offender turns deadly in Muldrow, OK; Sheriff's deputies battle a deadly fire which quickly turns into a murder investigation in Hudson Falls, NY; an armed man on the loose in Americus, GA vows that he'd rather die than go back to jail, murdering two officers in the process; and more.
