Cop-cam may be coming soon
WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - February 3, 2011 (WPVI) -- First came the dash-cam -- now the cop-cam.
Officers in Wichita, Kansas, are testing a high-tech camera that can be worn like cell phone headset or mounted on a helmet.
The AXON camera was developed by Taser, the company that makes stun-guns.
Wichita police Captain Jeff Easter says the video cam will allow officers to record their interactions with public.
The department already uses dash-mounted cameras in patrol cars.
The helmet-cam test will last a month.
