Road police get wearable cameras

Traffic police have received 206 wearable cameras which are supposed to help reduce corruption risks, the Latvian State Police told LETA December 22.

The cameras that will be attached to police uniforms will be recording the officers’ conversations with motorists.

The tender to supply the wearable cameras to the police concluded on October 31. The contract, worth €111,440, was awarded to Saint-Tech company.

The cameras were supplied on December 21, but technical and legal formalities have yet to completed.

Normunds Krapsis, the head of the Traffic Safety Department of the State Police, told LETA that the police would start using the cameras only in February because they have to learn how to use them first.

Officers will switch on their cameras during communication with traffic participants.
