Ohio Sheriff’s Office Begins Recycling In-Car Video Systems

April 19, 2010  | 


The Defiance County (Ohio) Sheriff's Office is the first law enforcement agency to take advantage of Decatur Electronics' "Green for Green" environmental trade-in program for in-car video.

"We're proud to be working with Defiance County," said Jake Tolbert, Decatur's marketing coordinator. "Green for Green helps them protect their community while we recycle old electronics and provide tools they need."

The Green for Green program allows law enforcement agencies to trade in their outdated in-car video systems for the new Responder 1000 in-car video system, while Decatur recycles the old systems.

"We're glad to work with Decatur," said Capt. Clawson, a Defiance County Sheriff's deputy. "New in-car video systems help us keep the county safer. Decatur's program gave us a chance to recycle the old units and get a good deal on the new equipment we needed."

Law enforcement agencies around the nation count on in-car video systems to help them protect their communities. In a study by the International Association of Chiefs of Police, an overwhelming majority of prosecutors found in-car video useful in prosecuting criminals driving under the influence and assaulting officers.
