San Diego cops to use video on heads

SAN DIEGO — Nine San Diego police officers will be participating in a pilot program to test head-mounted video cameras that will record their interactions with the public.

Police are expected to offer more details during a demonstration of the technology Tuesday morning.

The camera is about the size of a Bluetooth earpeice with a headband, and the recording device is the size of a large cell phone, authorities said. The technology is made by Phoenix-based Taser International.

Also testing the equipment is 18 officers from the San Jose Police Department, with Taser paying for the experiment, the department reported in December.
