Madison College public safety officers test camera

October 10, 2013

From host.madison.com: “Smile! Local officers testing body camera” — Officers at Madison Area Technical College are checking out a new piece of equipment that could help in gathering evidence, right from an officer’s shoulder.

The new gadget is a video camera that can be clipped onto a shoulder or other parts of an officer’s uniform.

“The portable cameras can be switched on when an officer faces a possible confrontation,” the college said in a news release.

The evidence caught by camera could help in crime detection, prevention and prosecution, the release said.
