Laurel police officers wearing video cameras mounted onto sunglasses, headband

LAUREL, Md. -

The Laurel Police Department is using a new high-tech tool to capture a play-by-play of exactly what happens when officers interact with the public on a stop.

It is a new generation of police video camera that provides an officer's point of view during stops.

The camera mounts to an officer's sunglasses or a headband and the footage is downloaded to an officer's phone and stored on a police department server.

On May 24, Laurel officers used the camera during a routine stop of a suspected drunk driver. What happened during the stop and how it ended is an example of how nothing is left to the imagination during this stop. It was all caught on camera.
