Video technology will soon form a huge part of law enforcement officers' tools, as the Singapore Police Force look to boost their crime-fighting capabilities.
The use of body-worn cameras, in-vehicle video recording systems and a mobile closed-circuit television system are either currently in the pipeline or being explored by the Police.
These were on display at the Police's annual workplan seminar and exhibition on Friday.
For the body-worn cameras, an operational pilot will take place in June this year at a Neighbourhood Police Centre.
The plan is for all frontline officers to eventually be equipped with these cameras by early next year to enhance their policing capability.
They will switch on the cameras -- each weighing about 79 grammes -- when responding to incidents.
In-vehicle recording systems will also be deployed in selected fast-response cars by June this year.
The Police Force aim to equip its fleet of fast-response cars with the full suite of in-vehicle recording capabilities by mid-2015.
It is hoped that eventually, the system would enable wireless streaming of live video feeds from the incident location to the police's Operations Room and Command Post.
Also on display was an anti-theft donation box to deter potential thieves.
The box is already in use at Sultan Mosque and the Police hope that the cost-effectiveness of this device means it can be implemented at all religious institutions islandwide.
