Wash. State Police Cars to Test New Cameras That Send Live Video Back to Station

LYNNWOOD, Wa. - The police department plans to test technology that will send live video from a patrol car back to the police station.

The technology comes from SecureEye Systems of Lynnwood.

The patrol-car camera starts when officers switch on their lights and sirens. Initially, just one patrol car will be able to send live video through a wireless Internet connection to the station.

Officers said the technology will allow them to transmit video from chases or dangerous traffic stops to supervisors and provider a safer situation for the public.

It will also allow the collection of key evidence and protect the department from lawsuits, officers said.

An additional 10 patrol cars were equipped with cameras that record directly to the cars'' computers.

Each camera system costs about $10,000, but SecureEye provided several systems for free as a way to test the technology, company officials said.
