Here’s an interesting story from the Rockford Register Star.
Belvidere police will test a wearable surveillance camera that captures video of cops’ actions from the officer’s perspective.
The 3.5-ounce battery-powered camera looks like a pager and can clip to an officer’s uniform or belt. […]
The camera starts recording once the officer slides the lens open. It can record more than four hours of color video and audio and sells for about $700.
Police in the UK are already testing hats with cameras in them.
