    We actualy have video cameras in our ambulances that have a lens facing forward and one inside the cab. They can be activated manualy by hitting a button or with a sudden change of intertia (hard braking, fast turn, hit something etc). For our driver training courses we watch a lot of dash cam footage which does make me appreciate the cameras presence.

    The fine should double for mountain dew because your not responsible enough to decide not to drink it, really bad for you. The government should regulate that. Redbull too. I put too much Redbull in my Yager so I should go to jail.

    I somehow don't mind dash cams - it's seems like it serves well for both sides. Cameras all over town though give me the creeps. I don't have anything to hide, but it gives me the willies anyway.

    I recently found out our county was one who had a drone, apparently leased for a year (I think it was) to see if it was something the sheriff's office would want long term, found out about it after the fact. The article I read was they tested it mostly in a rural area - which turned out to be MY rural area. Again, nothing to hide, but I also know I can walk around my property and not worry about the neighbors seeing me, only to find out that the sheriff's office may have! :O It totally gave me the heebie jeebies. I'm a huge supporter of LEO's but cameras and drones are too much for me...

    Dash cams I'm fine with. Keeps everyone accountable in tricky situations, where one is already subject to scrutiny of one arm of the government or another. Cameras everywhere put you under scrutiny at all times. Totally different animal. If EMSA wants to put cameras in their ambulances, that's cool too. They have the right to keep an eye on what personnel were doing when stuff went down.

    I agree. Dashcams are good. But LEO's should not fuss about it when they are getting recorded. It should be legal in every state to record (video and audio) of an official as long as it poses no safety risk to the officer or others.

    I agree I do not know why some places do not want their public officals recorded while doing thier duty in a public place, as long as it doesn't interfer with their duties. i do believe that this will eventually wind up in front of the Supreme court

    Dash cams rock! I was in a collision a few years ago in a camera equipped vehicle. The other guy's insurance company was giving a big song and dance and claiming the report from HPD was not available yet. My boss e-mailed them a copy of the video. The next day they were ready to cut a check.

    The trouble with cameras is that the Government does not see a difference between using them at an intersection on a public street and using them to look into a private citizens property.

    I recently watched several episodes of a show like "Cops" about UK LEOs, and it follows them around in much the same manner. The UK LEOs in the show have the same type of license plate recognition in their patrol vehicles and apparently it results in alot of traffic stops.(Computer automatically comes up with warrants or expired license,..et. al.) Scary stuff.

    it mounts on the car dashboard and the police can scan thru buildings, houses and apartments for currently 100 feet & can see what the people are doing in their houses, apartments, eg. walking, watching tv, in bed, smoking dope, going to potty, etc.....It is still experimental, and our local officers not to worry, they will only turn them on when they deem it necessary to investigate crime...... Privacy is kaput....

    I think that "you have no expectancy of privacy in public" is dog doo. If 30 of my friends surrounded a police department or other government office with sensors and cameras 24/7 I am pretty darn sure that is not OK. They would find some way of saying that is illegal. And as far as I am concerned using facial recognition is bogus if it is automated to randomly collect faces and match them up against suspects or what have you. The government is going way overboard now.
