Janesville police now sporting video-microphones on their uniforms
The Janesville Police Department has a new tool in its crime-fighting arsenal.
The video-microphones are part of the officer's regular portable radio system, and will be positioned on the front of their uniform. Captain of Patrol Dan Davis says the video records anything in front of the officer. Davis says this will help in gathering evidence, but will also assist in lengthy or complicated investigations.
The video recording will also aid in training and providing an accurate record of any disputes with residents.
