PORT WASHINGTON- Police officers in Port Washington are wearing some new technology.
They have tiny cameras on their uniforms.
The Port Washington Police Department just starting using hand-held devices that look like a pager, but there's a tiny lens inside.
The advantage to these cameras? They're mobile. They go with the officer everywhere from minor traffic accidents, to murder investigations, to the courthouse.
Port Washington's Police Chief Kevin Hingiss thinks more criminals will likely plead guilty -- since the proof is in the recording.
But the cameras aren't cheap. They cost $700 and up.
