Milton, NH police Wearing Cameras on Duty
As recently reported by WMUR’s Jennifer Gannon, Police officers in Milton, NH are among the first in New Hampshire to wear video recording cameras that capture everything that happens when they are out on duty.
The camera is a small, lipstick-sized device that can attach to the officers headband or glasses. Chief Richard Krauss reports that the police department paid approximately $1000 each for the cameras. Thus far, Milton police report that the cameras have been a great tool for gathering evidence. And, as for encounters with an “agitated” person, “you tell them they are being audio and video recorded, their attitude changes very, very quickly,” said Chief Richard Krauss.
