This article is basically about how technology is improving to new heights and how police officers are taking advantage of it. The latest weapon in our criminal justice system is the mini camera called Axon which is about as tiny as a cigar bud. This new technology allows officers to clip on the mini camera to their glasses or collar and has a recording time of 2 hours. The camera will help take away any lingering indications of police brutality or other controversial matters that occur during the officers rounds. The cloud system is the storing unit in which the recording can be stored. This just goes to show how much technology has taken hold of society. Officers are using every bit of technology to make our streets as safe as possible at the same time making it fair for society and letting everyone know that the story isn’t one sided and the camera is there to improve justice on the streets.
