“We signed up, got a few pairs of the Google glasses, and we’re trying them out, seeing if they have any value in investigations, mostly for patrol purposes,” a New York City law enforcement official told VentureBeat.

The high-tech glasses are only available through the Google Glass Explorer Program, an application process which requires the applicants to be at least 18 years of age and a U.S. citizen, according to Google.

On-demand photo and video and wireless facial recognition software are just some of the features that could potentially attract law enforcement to the new wearable technology.
