After introduction of ‘body worn cameras’ for traffic officers in Hyderabad two years ago, Cyberabad Traffic Police (CTP) on Friday launched ‘eye-worn cameras’ for the first time in the country.

Cyberabad Police Commissioner C V Anand launched the initiative by issuing ‘7 eye worn cameras’ for Traffic officers, which will be used during enforcement work under its ‘Smart Policing’ initiative.

These cameras are worn as goggles and are fixed to the right side of the frame and have the advantage of capturing pictures as they are seen by the eye of the traffic officer. “This is the first time any police force is using eye worn cameras on duty. They are sturdy and have recording facility for both audio and video with a 32 GB internal memory which can record up to 21 hours continuously,” a release from Cyberabad Police said.
