On the occasion, the cameras were distributed to the challaning officers by the DGP. In January, the police had bought four such devices on trial basis.

The cameras, no bigger than a common mobile phone, will be attached near the chest and shoulders of policemen. They will be able to click high-quality photographs, record sound and capture high-definition video.

The device will help record facts as sometimes people misbehave with the police and sometimes policemen misbehave with people at checkposts, protests, accidents and other spots, said officials.
