Almost all L.E.O.’s are using voice recorders to record events. Now they can operate in the same fashion and have both High Quality Digital Audio, and at the same time record HD quality Video. Here is a link to a resent AP article about the Oakland CA, P.D. using “body” cameras note that the price quoted in the article is a misprint it should read $899. http://special.registerguard.com/turin/2011/jul/10/police-say-wearing-tiny-cameras-adds-to-their-safety/
Most of the “body” cameras clip on the users shirt with the lens positioned on the center of the chest. The problem with this configuration is that as seen in the online video’s if the officer has to use a handgun it blocks the subject. The TAC-720 can be worn on the shoulder Epaulet using the standard accessory clip .
Tactical Action Camera’s allow officers to video situations away from their vehicle, to do witness video interviews on site either in the car or at the scene, enable bicycle and motorcycle patrols to have video recording .
