Michigan State Police Investigates Malfunctioning Dash Cams

May 04, 2017

Michigan State Police is investigating the source of its malfunctioning dash cams.

In March, an officer was involved in an incident that led to a man being hospitalized and charged with a felony. The vehicle's camera began recording during the traffic stop when the patrol car’s lights were activated, but it did not write the recording to the memory card, reports the News-Review. At the time, it was determined that Michigan State Police did not tamper with the video or memory card, but a cause was not identified.

This week, a spokesperson for Michigan State Police said the malfunction is affecting patrol vehicles at every post in the state. About half of the police fleet uses the in-vehicle camera from Digital Ally. Digital Ally has released a software remedy that it believes may resolve the malfunction, but in the meantime, M Live reports that Michigan State Police is seeking a new camera system.
