New Crime-fighting tool – TiVo in Police Cars

New York Times story on Police use of digital video: “The Tyler Police Department in East Texas outfitted its 60 patrol cars with systems that take a steady stream of video. It includes a special`pre-event’ feature that automatically goes back and saves the minute of footage before an officer hits the record button to mark the video. `Now that I’ve got them on video, I figure, Let’s go to court, I’d be happy to play them for you,’ Tyler police officer John Weavers said.”
