NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - State and Lowcountry leaders took on the issue of police body cameras, in a public forum at North Charleston City Hall Friday.
State Rep. Wendell Gilliard organized the event in the wake of the fatal shooting of Walter Scott by then-police officer Michael Slager.
The public had a chance to ask questions of two different camera manufacturers after seeing what some of these body cameras could do.
Klear Kapture's body camera would be attached to the officer's chest. It would record non-stop for 60 minute intervals once it's turned on at the beginning of an officers shift. All you have to do is press the save button on the camera to save the video from that 60 minute interval.
Meanwhile, Jonathon Wrenn with Taser showed off two different cameras. One would be attached to the officer's chest, the other on a pair of glasses. The officer would have to double click the Taser camera to start recording. It also grabs the previous thirty seconds of video from the moment it is double clicked.
