FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. — The Farmington Hills Police Department has purchased and installed the newest high definition police in-car video system to replace an antiquated low definition system.
With the old system failing and the cost of repairs becoming exceedingly cumbersome, the time was right to replace and upgrade the technology, said Farmington Hills Police Chief Chuck Nebus.
This new system, appropriately named “Watchguard,” digitally records police/citizen contacts, and then wirelessly transmits these events to a secure server. Along with the new HD video, this upgrade also includes new wireless microphones with a line of sight range of up to two miles, and it is capable of maintaining audio reception through buildings, greatly exceeding previous capabilities.
