'Occupy' protests send police shopping for wearable cop cams

Law enforcement warms up to body-worn video cameras in the field, but some are hesitant to trust the cloud to store footage

In his lengthy career with the Oakland Police Department, Steve Lovell encountered plenty of cases where in-field videofootage could have come in handy.

"I've worked a lot of protests in my 20-year career, and all too often, the protesters were videotaping us but we weren't videotaping them," Lovell, now managing director for body-worn video provider Vievu, says. "They were throwing rocks at us and we didn't do anything to pick up the evidence or record that the evidence happened. We were just saying that it was happening."
