French Officers going high tech: Will Go Pro cameras become the norm?POSTED: 02/23/15 1:02 AM
St. Maarten – The noticeable presence of a Go pro camera affixed to the uniform of an officer from the French side of the island raises more questions than answers, but the biggest question is, was the decision by that officer personal or has it been mandated by the French authorities.
This move by officers of the law is just one of the new methods of approach in law enforcement and while the objective is for the officers in question to record incidents on real time, that forage can make the difference in the end result of an apprehension of an individual or persons.
With the spate of incidents that occurs during the local Carnival festivities, it will be a good idea to see the local law enforcement ranks adopt a similar approach. That way, they will be in a better position to record incidents as they occur and moments before they escalate when they interact with the revelers.
