San Jose police test head-mounted cameras for officers

• San Jose Mercury News
San Jose police, under fire for interactions with the public that have turned violent, on Friday launched a pilot project equipping officers with head-mounted cameras to record contacts with civilians.

Officers will activate the cameras, about the size of a Bluetooth device and attached by a headband above the ear, every time they respond or make contact with a person. At the end of the officer's shift, the recording will be downloaded to a central server.

 As long as the individual officer has control of turning the camera on or off at their discretion this is a waste of money and something new to be abused. The control of turning the camera off should be remotely controled, be recorded and at the descretion of a person that is held accountable in the police station. Every person and every decision should be recorded dated , timed so nothing is very lost.  Transparency , no excuses and no erased or lost tapes.
