In-Car Camera Can Be a Police Officers' Guardian Angel

In the field a police officer uses their training to assess crime. The officer spends most of their time patrolling the highways, arresting criminals and saving lives of others.

With the aid of an in-car video system, you can remember exactly how a crime scene looked and felt. It's very hard for a police officer to recall what is said days later from an incident. The car camera system will let the officer review the footage to get all the facts correct.

This is really important now days, with a friendlier police community based department trying to stay away from physical incidents while on duty. Community policing has some great opportunities for law enforcement. The biggest is the ability to ask the community and politicians for funding for police car cameras. The agency now has a way to track their interactions with citizens and prove that they made an accurate arrest. One of the advantages will make itself known quickly, racial profiling claims will be dealt with in an efficient timely manner now that video is involved. There are way too many complaints about officers pulling over suspects based on color or ethnicity. Once the video footage from the in-car camera system is reviewed, the supervisors can make a decision on the conduct of the officer.

True to form, we find that the police car video cameras place accountability on officers who are not conducting themselves in a professional manner according to the state guidelines. Police Chiefs, Sheriffs, and District Attorneys can watch video recordings from the car camera recording systems on a timely basis to review the officers, helping ensure a better police department.

Here is a complete list of the perks a police car camera has to offer agencies:

1. Protects the officer and the police department against false accusations.

2. An intact chain of custody for, the evidence to be turned into the district attorney

3. The car camera footage helps officers improve safety

4. The police department can standardize conduct and make policy changes by using the police in-car cameras

5. Officers will feel protected by the dash-cam system re-enforcing their side of the incident

6. The in-car video camera footage can be released to the public, showing full transparency and avoiding conflict with citizens groups

7. Easy management of video evidence, stored in a central safe location

8. The lower court cost of defending the agency against law suits

9. Greater convictions of DUI and criminals, because the video evidence is so definitive

10. So the training of beginner cops using the in car video cameras can correct mistakes made by training cadets.

11. All Studies point to one conclusion, that the use of police dash camera systems eliminates complaints

The major study published by the International Association of Police Chiefs states that 94% of all complaints against officers are dismissed at the front desk if there is an in-car video camera involved.

A whole host of complaints against police officers goes away when the suspects learned that the officer's vehicle was equipped with a digital police dash camera system. This video evidence can certify a ticket or an arrest. 

With a larger and every increasing amount of police car video cameras coming online in the 2015 year ending, just over 60% of the police departments utilize digital camera systems. The in car cameras will be becoming an ever increasing part of fair policing policies also known as community oriented policing.

In today's society, there are many different opinions on who is responsible for committing a particular crime while an officer is on-scene without video (10-8) on duty. In the past, the cost of storage of analog products where prohibited. Now that the most technologically advanced police in-car video cameras utilize digital video and hard drives, storage is very affordable, the video footage can be stored for years or even decades. The shear fact that a police department can store dash-cam videos for years will allow them to protect themselves in the future if a dispute erupts. 

The police car video systems recently have advanced capabilities and are able to transfer data through wireless options to the headquarters. The super features also include instant identification of license plate numbers so officers know if the car they are approaching is driven by dangerous suspects. 

In conclusion

Police Car Camera Automatic Hands Free Wireless Downloading/Uploading from the Police Car to the Police Station

The Police in-car camera is the most vital piece of equipment in the vehicle today, providing a real advantage to police departments who are buying them.

Police car video systems can, in addition, offer instant verification of license plate numbers, and ensure proper management of law and order. 

The Key Illuminating Advantages of Video Camera Systems in Police Cars

Video recording security technology has shown to be very important to the task of detectives. Locating criminals and providing video evidence in court strengthens the case using the police vehicle camera system. The dash-cam cruiser system allows a police chief to view and teach officers the correct way of doing their duties. The very stressful occupation of being a law enforcement officer, needs an impartial witness to their duties. Once the camera systems were installed in their cars, a large majority of officers began to enjoy and count on the silent video witness.

Analysis of the crime situations - Car police camera system give the officers and detectives the ability to review video evidence, with specific goals in mind. The inspection of officer behavior can reduce the claims against the department. The advent of the dash-camera system has allowed law enforcement agencies to address attitudes that may be an issue with officers completing their duties. The greatest advantage is the law officers security.

The Public Perception - It's sad to say, but in certain regions in the United States, law officers are looking at in an unfavorable light. The important issues are police brutality and profiling. The effective weapon is the HD in-car police camera video system, combating through video evidence what the opinion of the public is saying. Letting the public actually see the police dash-cam videos add to transparency and good will to a community. The car video recording equipment adds a third eye that is honest and is amazing. If the agency has added the latest police car camera technology their videos, they will be shot in HD or 1080P.

Recorded Evidence Footage - Video from the police cars continuously prove their financial investments. The criminal cases that go to court are provided with video evidence from the dash cams are extremely helpful in convicting criminals. The key cornerstone of a successful police department has to be built upon a high quality police car camera video recording system.

    Sample policy for in-car camera program

    Posted by Wilford Q. on 29th Apr 2016

    Martel has developed a Model Policy, which is included in the exact Practices policing.
    The Martel In-Car Camera Policy is intended as a guide post, which can be adapted or
    tweaked to the unique needs of an agency.

    Correct management of an police in-car camera program is essential to everyone in the community. Sheriffs
    must have a thorough understanding of the entire cost of needs before the instituting
    an in-car camera system.

    The policy give you the minimum requirement for
    agencies using in-car video systems. The dash-cam-in-car camera documents the consequences of both the suspects and the
    law officer. A police chief/sheriff may think the in-car camera as a method of getting convictions,
    honesty and accountability. This video evidence must be taken into account when
    implementing or measuring the performance of an video in-car camera program.

    In-car Video Camera Systems for Police that provide for officer safety.

    Posted by Scott M. on 16th Sep 2014

    We have had a number of police cameras systems in our department before the Martel DC3. All of them where a bust for reliability. Most of the video cameras where dash-cams and had poor resolution. After we got our first Martel dashcam we order 3 more right away. They fit in all of our vehicles even though we have suv tahoes and impalas and crown vics. I dont normally write reviews but I was compelled to tell every police department that the Martel police car camera systems are well worth the money!!! Do it right the first time. Solid state, Gps, wireless file transfer, radar cable interface, touch screen control, 2 cameras front and rear, 2.4ghz wireless microphone, Military MIL810G and the best part manufactured in the USA.

    Police in-car camera system wireless video transferring package

    Posted by Travis on 11th Aug 2014

    When we bought our first couple of DC3 police cameras we did not plan to wireless upload our videos. After the second year we order 11 more in car cameras systems from Martel. Now we had a problem and needed to manage the cars. There are 2 shifts a day. So we needed a way to get the videos from the police car to the server without having a Captain pull memory cards. So we called Martel and they explained how the wireless\wifi uploading from the cars to the station worked. The video evidence files will be automatically uploaded into the video management software through a encrypted 802.11n private network. The officer has no interaction with the system which means our chain of evidence is pure and untainted. The files are moved down the wireless network with any hands touching the video. The DC3 police car camera does not need a MDT or computer, this was important to us since we did not have a laptop in our cruisers. Plus if we had to integrate it with windows we would have to hire a IT technician. The Captain can review the video and burn them to dvd if they are needed for court. Well its been a few years now and we have over 56 cars downloading a day. It works just like advertised. Here is the kicker Martel has been updating us FREE with new Video Server software since we started and gets getting faster and better every year. We are always going to be a Martel customer. Even some of our officers who have left to take jobs in our county have had their sheriffs departments order Martel video systems. Is the ultimate Fleet management software for wireless video transferring.

    Half the price Police In-Car Camera Video System with Wireless video uploading from the car

    Posted by Matt on 16th Jul 2014

    Allot police departments already have video in car cameras systems there are still several thousand departments without police dash-cams recording devices in their police vehicles. The police dashcam has some huge advantages over the police body cameras. The biggest is that the in car camera system automatically starts recording when the light bar is activated or the speed of the police car goes over a certain speed. The draw back or con of the police body worn cameras is that it is totally up to the officer to hit record. Not the best idea if you want video to be recorded during a huge incident. The biggest problem with body cameras is that there is no pre event recording. The one minute before the incident so you never really see why the officer is making the arrest. 1080P In-Car Camera System with with GPS and H.264 may not be the best solution because of the huge files that are created. Storage is going to be expensive. Police camera system that incorporates GPS Geotag that stamps the longitude and latitude coordinates onto every video file, frame by frame and picture by picture. Many departments deployed the in-car video camera to record traffic violations now days. Allot of police departments who go 10-8 need to have a police in car camera system and a police body camera on them at all times. 10-8 mean on duty by the way.

    American made police car camera system

    Posted by LT. Walters on 10th Jun 2014

    Since Martel manufactures all their parts in the USA it really makes a difference. We have had 12 Martel video systems since 2001. None of these units have had any issues and have been working perfectly for over 13 years now. I cant say enough about Martel quality police cameras. Now the DC3 in car systems are our next purchase and we are going to get them with the wireless video uploading transferring system from the police car to the police station. After this our next Martel system will be a add on ALPR license plate reader.

    Police car cameras and the modern police agency

    Posted by Thomas on 3rd May 2014

    We chose the Martel DC3 police in car camera system because we wanted the wireless uploading of the video. We have now over 19 Martel video systems and you need to watch their videos, it impressive. Police cameras in the car guard us against law suits. The touchscreen is so small and can be mounted anywhere. I do recommend getting the drivers license scanner. Its been a real crime tool for my department.

    New, police in car video, 802.11N Only One in the world that is MIlitary 810G

    Posted by Martin J. (New York, NY) on 1st May 2014

    The DC# police in car video is made in the USA. I have been looking a reasonable priced video system for our police department now for over a year. I looked at mirror units and seat mounted police in car video systems. I found them to be lacking the area of durability. The police officers treat them very harshly. The Martel police in car video has no button just a touch screen. It has no moving part, totally solid state and records to flash cards. It also has the ability to auto wirelessly download the video from the police car to the police stations server. All that and a price we can afford. We have had them now 6 months and I would recommend them to every department I meet.
