Scottsdale Police Are Going High-Def

By Breyer Law Offices on September 17, 2017

Police units around the country are promoting the use of car dash and body cameras to record their actions. The Scottsdale police department has been employing these methods for years, but now, they’re boosting their efforts by going high-def.

Why Cameras Are Needed

The body cameras that the Scottsdale police currently use sit on each officer’s chest and record only low-quality video. The images are usually blurry and grainy; and the audio doesn’t come through clearly either.

The cameras that will now be used are Avon Flex 2s. They can be placed on an officer’s shoulder or sunglasses. This allows the camera to get a wider angle, showing more of the action. And they will show action. Recording only in high-definition, any video taken will be clearer and saved in a much higher-quality format.

All videos will automatically be uploaded to a cloud service that has encrypted coding for security purposes. All officers will be required to turn the cameras on during every stop or call. Every Scottsdale officer will have a new camera by the end of 2017, as the upgrade also includes 60 more cameras than currently in use now.

Can Body Cameras Help You?

Knowing that everything is being recorded can make things safer for everyone involved, both police officers and the members of the public.
