“We are pleased to be able to provide the latest in Police Body Camera Technology to the Warrior Police Department. We at WOLFCOM understand that police officers carry a lot of equipment on their uniforms, so we designed our VISION to be compact in size and completely configurable, so police officers can customize their body camera for the best fit. We design our police body cameras to be the best… because cops deserve the best!” said WOLFCOM Founder Peter Austin Onruang.
Lt. Cory Archer was one of the officers who researched body cameras for his department and helped make the decision to use WOLFCOM’s VISION police body camera. “We had an officer involved shooting back in October of last year and we didn’t have body cameras or car camera footage so we thought it was a good idea to get body cameras at that time,” said Archer.
“I looked on the internet and read about WOLFCOM’s police body cameras and liked the way they worked and were designed. I liked the size of the body camera, and the way it attached to the uniform and that it had a rotating lens so you could put it in different places on your uniform,” said Archer.
“The department has 13 police officers and we were split half and half about using them. The overall response of the department since we’ve started using them has been fairly positive. The biggest challenge has been getting our guys used to using them everyday. Everyone likes the fact that they’re fairly easy to download and they’re versatility… that you’re able to move them around and adjust them on your uniform… And the video is great; the quality of the video and audio is really good,” said Archer.
Archer says the department only recently started using the body cameras and that they have not recorded any major cases yet. “We adapted our own police body camera policy that says anytime our officers come into contact with the public in a law enforcement capacity they should turn the body camera on to record the interaction,” said Archer.
