Minot PD Camera Upgrade

Minot PD Camera Upgrade

Posted: Updated:

With technology advancing everywhere you turn, the Minot Police Department was no exception and had to keep up with the times.

The existing patrol car cameras are now obsolete and the department decided it was time for an upgrade.

Record Sergeant Dale Plessas (PLES-us) says the new cameras have multiple features they were looking for, from their small size to their ability to keep video on file for a long period of time.

Plessas says the new system allows officers to pull up to the station and automatically download to a computer inside the station.

The old system was much more time consuming and required the officer to manually download video inside the station and transfer to a disc.

The new system also has it's own retention policy and will automatically clean out video that is no longer needed, and that's not all...

(Dale Plessas - Minot PD Record Sergeant) "One of the important things about the system is the way they're triggered, how they activate. This new system gives us a lot more activations. For example in an accident the system will automatically come on and records what occurred prior to the accident. You can set it to record a certain amount of time before hand. It's constantly recording however when the event occurs it activates and maintains that video and therefore your evidence is maintained. If a car is involved in an accident that evidence is maintained.

Three patrol cars are now equipped with the new G3 Vision cameras and the remaining 13 cars will be upgraded as funds become available.
