Pistol Cam, a gun-attachable camera that records audio and video during a gun shot, may help document and provide a solid evidence for every gun shooting by the police.
Whether the cop has shot a person unnecessarily or not, the Pistol Cam may be effective in reducing wrongly-convicted police crimes or people who get shot by accident by cops.
Currently it’s only being used in the high-crime U.S. metropolitan cities like LA and New York but if proven effective, it could be widespread throughout the country soon.
This allows us the opportunity to review shooting incidents, unlawful use of force incidents and hopefully exonerate the member that’s involved in the shooting. It also ensures the public the police are not overstepping their boundaries,” said Orange County Sheriff’s Office Capt.
