LAPD set to add cameras to patrol cars

Editor's Note -- Is your agency ready for an in-car digital video system?

Consider the following, says Mike Fergus, project manager for in-car technical assistance training at the International Assoc. of Chiefs of Police:

  • What will your policy be?
    When will cameras be used? / When is an officer mandated to use it?
    Will all interactions will the public be recorded, e.g., helping with a flat tire? Responding to any crime?
  • How will your agency handle and manage the video?
    Will the officer be able to review his/her own recording for training/officer safety purposes?
    Will supervisors regularly review the footage?
  • How will your agency store the video?
    Videos require a huge amount of space on a server. In fact, it can be more expensive to store it than to intall the cameras in the first place.
    What is your archival plan? Compress after 30 days? Destroy after a year?
