COMANCHE COUNTY, OK- The Comanche County Sheriff’s Office recently purchased 20 WOLFCOM 3RD EYE Police Body Cameras. The purchase also included 2 year warrantees and radio cables so the officers can utilize the cameras’ radio speaker mic function.
“We at WOLFCOM understand that police officers carry a lot of weight and equipment on their uniforms every day. This is why we designed the WOLFCOM 3RD EYE to double as a speaker microphone so that police officers don’t have to carry extra equipment and weight. The Comanche County Sheriff’s Office really appreciates this feature and we’re happy it was a major factor in their decision to buy the 3RD EYE as their camera of choice,” said WOLFCOM Founder Peter Austin Onruang.
Lt. Doyle Tosh is helping to set up and manage the Sheriff’s Office’s body camera program. “We looked at a few body camera systems and narrowed it down to two. One of our deputies already had a WOLFCOM police body camera that he purchased on his own and we were able to borrow another brand of body camera as a loan. We took the two body cameras and tested them and compared them side by side. Between the two, the WOLFCOM was a better fit for us. The other camera was just a body cam, but the WOLFCOM 3RD EYE has a dual purpose as a radio microphone and that was more convenient for us. We already have enough equipment on our uniforms. We wear our mics like the system is set up so this is one less extra piece of equipment we have to worry about,” said Tosh.
“From the testing phase, our officers liked the cameras’ ease of use, its one button to turn it on and off. The main deciding factor was the system and the way it was set up,” said Tosh.
The department has 33 commissioned police officers. 20 are patrol officers and each patrol officer will have their own body camera. The department is still finalizing its body camera policy before deploying the units in the field.
