Taylorsville Police choose Patroleyes SC-DV5 body cameras
TAYLORSVILLE, N.C. — The Taylorsville P.D. has made the decision to equip officers with SC-DV5 body cameras. Many factors influenced the choice to go with PatrolEyes, among them was the ability to implement an affordable body camera plan. With a smaller department, the Taylorsville Police Department faced cost constraints, as with most small agencies. Chief Dennis James stated that the department had been using Taser brand cameras in the past, but due to the large costs associated they have since switched to PatrolEyes cameras without sacrificing key features or quality. Chief James mentioned that in his opinion the PatrolEyes SC-DV5 has provided better image quality and an overall superior “ease of use”.
PatrolEyes CEO Mike Gramza states “We understand that most departments, especially smaller ones will face budget constraints when implementing a body camera program.” A Feb. 2015 article published by the Associated Press touches on the topic that most departments are forced to sign long term contracts with competing body camera companies or simply go without the cameras. “Many of our competitors have lured departments into long term body camera agreements for overpriced equipment and cloud storage, initially costing thousands of dollars, while the overall contract often ends up costing in the millions.”
Gramza goes on to state that “PatrolEyes has always made it a priority to provide the best cameras at the lowest possible cost and we give departments the option to use a low cost local storage option or a cloud based option. We simply do not want to see departments forced with the decision to go without cameras or eventually abandon a body camera program altogether due to high cost cloud based storage. We do everything we can to provide options to departments large or small with customizable cost effective features with our devices, storage and multiple camera management options.”
