want to get the best tool for our officers to work on the streets with," said
Lt. Mark King. "It's as simple as that."
officers volunteered to test out the new equipment for a 30-day run, starting
capture a whole lot more with this, because about 70 percent of our action is
away from the patrol car," King said. "So that'll give us a good gauge of how
these things work with shift officers actually on the street, going to calls
and talking to people, even in their homes."
King says the new models will be more user-friendly, and a better price - $299
instead of $1,200. If the testing goes well, the chief would like to have a
camera on every patrol officer.
