    It will get to the point that an officer's word [without video to back it up] will be worthless. Or maybe we're there already.

    The clip that holds them to your uniform is junk. If you have to run or fight it does not stay on your shirt. It will be swinging by the lanyard if you are wearing it or lost if not. I hear there are other options for attaching them, just have not seen them.

    The video and audio is not bad at all considering the cost. Battery life lacks some since you are not able to leave it in standby mode, it drains the battery quickly.

    Try being the white D/S who uses justified force against three black attackers, when a black D/S (later found to be friends of the attackers) tells IA you used force "for no reason". My word was "useless" and I WISH I had a camera! Thank GOD, I had citizen witnesses that corroborated my version of events.

    Wow, you got sold out by another cop... why did IA take his word? Was he there or just had input on something that he had no clue like how Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson does?

    We had had a run of bad press in our AO. The Sheriff got a call from the other guy's Sgt that "something bad happened", so he ordered a complete investigation. After being stripped of my car-gun-creds, 10 days admin leave, 6 months of alternate duty, and a 10 month investigation, the complaint was "unsubstantiated". When I pointed out that the other guy had a "personal relationship" with my attackers, and that his actions were, in fact, a felony criminal violation of the Offcial Misconduct Statute, nobody cared. My three attackers were unarrested on scene and never charged with their crimes. 2 road Sgts, the LT and, the IA investigator were all subsequently reassigned. But, the "Cop", who screwed me, was never investigated. And I got to "take one for the team".

    Like I said, I WISH I HAD A CAMERA!!!!!!!!!!!

    I own one of these. Looks exactly the same but only $19.99. Priced lower and im sure the quality is much lower too. I have only clipped it to my duty belt and as a result get good audio but video of everyone's legs.

    Back to the cameras . . .

    1) Will the clip be sturdy enough?
    2) Will the camera offer quality audio (as video is usually worthless after dark unless the unit has IR lighting and recording capabilities)?
    3) Is the camera weather resistant or weather proof?
    4) Can the data be easily downloadable?
    5) Can the data/video be secured to prevent unauthorized access and/or tampering?
    6) Does the camera have a good time and date stamp?
    7) Does the camera offer a visual cue when it is on or activated?

    And yeah, it's been my experience that in this day and age with our generally dumb sheeple who think everything is like on the various cop shows, everything is recorded and all we do is cool stuff.

    FWIW, I just ordered one. I'll give my own T&E report after I've used it for a while.

    Thats why I carry a olympus digital recorder I think its a ws-210 with external pocket mic.

    I had a person from the neighboring department try to screw me. After they heard the "tape" they cleared me and after that I dont think my boss will be thinking too highly of the other person..
