Calif. department boosts new shoulder cameras
By Ryan Olson
PARADISE, Calif. — Police officers in Paradise will soon have a new tool to use when they go out on patrol.
The Paradise Town Council voted 4-0 to spend $14,820 to buy 20 shoulder microphones that can also record video and sound.
The "VIDMIC" devices from Utah-based EHS, Inc. look similar to ones that officers have been using for years. There are some key differences, including a raised area holding a camera "eye" and a screen to display a picture on the back.
