San Jose PD Testing TASER AXON Video System
November 04, 2009
The San Jose Police Department will be the first law enforcement agency in the country to use new ear-mounted video and audio recorders on the job this month, and police say they will provide a new window into arrests and other situations.
The portable AXON cameras, made by Taser International, are expected to be given to 72 San Jose officers in late November or early December, police said. The cameras can record an officer's point of view for up to 10 1/2 hours, and police say the devices will help officers write more accurate reports and aid officers if their actions are called in to question.
"It's been in the works for the past year, and this will be a one-year pilot to see if these things work out," said San Jose Police spokesman Jermaine Thomas.
