Police videos could be game-changing tool in NM

APD will require officers to use small, digital lapel-mounted cameras


Albuquerque Journal

ALBUQUERQUE — "Cops" for real, every day, every stop.

Next time an Albuquerque Police Department officer rolls up on a traffic stop, both the driver — and the officer — can expect to be on camera, though not on a television show.

Starting Sunday, APD will require officers to use small, digital lapel-mounted cameras, or as a last resort audio tape recorders, to record all calls involving citizen encounters. Officers now are required to record calls most likely to result in citizen complaints, such as disorderly conduct arrests and home and vehicle searches.
