Police In-Car Camera Systems: Decades-Proven Police Department Reinforcements
In-car camera systems turning out to be an indispensable law enforcement asset
Modern day crime fighting gadgets are considered a necessity at present. A forecast about department purchasing trends noted that ammunition and firearms supply, tactical accessories, vehicles, and technology will top 2014. Advancements in technology promoted effective law enforcement in the past years. In-car cameras have been introduced since 1980s when the Mothers Against Drunk Drivers (MADD) was formed. MADD awakened the nationís awareness to its growing problem of driving under influence (DUI). Police departments began installing patrol car cameras to gather evidence which helped convict offenders.
Use of police car cameras has come a long way since then. A study published by The Police Chief (2004) demonstrated the value and impact of these cameras. According to the finding, use of camera systems helped improve citizenís confidence in law enforcers. It also assisted the policemenís ability to capture and convict violators. The system also improved the professionalism and performance of officers, as it provided an immediate source of feedback. They have used the videos to critique performance and tactics which direct them to use better safety techniques. Reviewing the videos aids the officers to prepare better written reports and get exact quotes from suspects. Public safety is sure to benefit from having patrol care video systems available to all police officers.
Limited department funding sometimes delimit the adaptation of the in-car system, most especially with small ones. An officer and K-9 handler with a small department came up with a solution and designed his own affordable and reliable system. Since then, 10-8 Video has grown mostly because of referrals. Jubal Ragsdale, a deputy and President of 10-8 Video, mentioned they are developing products with GPS capability.
