Observation Camera Presented to Garden City Police Dept.
According to Roger Bogstead, the executive director of the Nassau County Traffic Board and the coordinator of the Stop DWI Program, this camera is very useful in the prosecution of those arrested because it may catch a suspect trying to hide a beer can or some other type of evidence when the officer's back is turned. The officer will be equipped with a microphone, which will help to protect the officer as well. In addition there will be a microphone in the car so that anything the suspect or suspects may say that the officer does not catch, will be recorded on tape.
