Harlan Police Officers are wearing the new piece of equipment on their uniforms. It is a mobile video camera. Officers started wearing them on Friday.

"So far it's working good. Captures good video that can be used," said Chief Mike Thomas. "It will help support to convict some people or it can be used to redeem some people. It goes both ways," said Chief Thomas.
