Houston County Department Gets New Gadget

New surveillance video is helping the Houston County Sheriff’s Office crack down on crime and protects deputies.

It's called a pocket cam.

Officers wear them on their uniforms while they're on patrol.

Officials say it's beneficial in cases where officers are accused of misconduct as well as recording witnesses during investigations.
"If there is no fault and the claim is substantiated by what our person told us that they are victimized on then we show them the video and tell them that there seems to be difference in the story. The story in the video and the story you're telling us," said Captain Antonio Gonzalez.

Pocket cameras cost anywhere from $500 to $1000.
