Body and Dash Camera Systems Built with the Officer in Mind

November 23, 2021 — Police cameras are no longer considered common-place equipment—they are considered essential. Body-worn camera and dash camera systems provide immediate, first-hand evidence of any encounter between an officer and civilian. In a time when accountability, transparency, and safety are demanded by the communities you serve, body-worn and dash cameras are critical technology.

But as most law enforcement agencies have moved to implement this technology, they have also discovered how expensive it can become. Some systems require additional investment in back-end equipment, or they charge recurring fees. For smaller agencies, their video systems—while essential—can quickly start to feel like a financial burden.

The founder of 10-8 Video, now a retired sheriff’s deputy, recognized these issues when he was working for an agency with too little funding to afford a dash camera system. After researching the market, he decided to utilize his experience in the computer and consumer-electronics industry to develop an all-digital dashcam system that would meet the needs and budgets of smaller departments.

The result is what 10-8 Video offers today: the most reliable body and dash camera systems on the market, with no hidden or recurring fees, and no contract commitments required.

“We have been using these systems for over a year and they are more reliable than higher-priced units we have used in the past. We highly recommend these systems!”
—Clinton (South Carolina) Police Department

ONE OF THE CHALLENGES of writing and editing a magazine is telling a story in a relatively small amount of space. Sometimes it seems like there is never enough room to say everything that needs to be said. I find myself making tough decisions about what parts stay and what parts go.
