Cops record operations with cameras

POZORRUBIO— Be careful, you are on candid camera!

The Pozorrubio Police Station (PPS) launched its novel project “Project Selfie”, the use of a digital camera attached to a helmet on the head of a policeman to record its operations particularly in checkpoints and patrolling on Thursday (November 5).

P/Sr. Inspector Ryan Manongdo, chief of PPS, said it will be useful for documenting policemen’s actual operations in the streets.

“We can use these file footages even in our investigations”, said Manongdo.

He said he expects the project to also change the way the policemen and the citizens relate to each other.

“While there are some citizens that are bullies, it will also help us check the conduct of our policemen when they patrol and man checkpoints,” said Manongdo.

The cameras are monitored and controlled through cell phones upon installation of the application.

He added people act differently when in front of a camera.

“The cameras record and show output in real time”, said Manongdo.

PPS has two units of the device donated by former classmates of Manongdo at the Dagupan City National High School (DCNHS) while two more will be turned over to the station in the following days.

PPS is the first police station in the country to use the device in police operations.

Manongdo already conducted briefing and orientation on the use of the device to the members of PPS alongside its launching. (Hilda Austria)
