Hardly anything happens in public anymore without someone shooting video of it and then posting it online for all to see. And as some police officers have discovered, amateur recordings don’t always show the whole story. To fend off allegations of abuse, a company known for its weapons has developed a camera system for law enforcement.
The I-Team found a department, not far from Las Vegas, already using it. Police in Lake Havasu City, Arizona are using headcams to document their daily patrols.
Lake Havasu plays host to an annual spring break invasion and despite evidence to the contrary on YouTube, this year, drunken party-goers weren’t the only ones recording the action.
“I think they realize if it’s on video, it’s on video. They can’t screw up and neither can we,” said Officer Steve Angel, Lake Havasu City Police Department.
