When Sgt. David Schwab talks about the Dothan Police Department’s new integrated camera system, he uses terms like “functionality” and “user friendliness.”
“What this system is going to do is it’s going to effectively replace what we have currently,” the supervisor of the department’s technical services division said. “It’s light-years ahead of where we are.”
The department is transitioning from just in-car cameras to a linked system that includes in-car and body-worn cameras.
“It’s not like we’re just adding body cameras,” Schwab said. “We’re actually replacing all the hardware that we have that’s 20-plus years old that’s in the cars right now.”
