The Dothan Police Department (Ala.) is installing a new camera system in vehicles, with an additional camera worn by police officers, WTVY reported.

The department has chosen the “Body Worn” camera systems from Utility Associates, consisting of two cameras in each car and one in the officer’s vest. The cameras start recording once vehicle lights are turned on, and footage is uploaded for officers to view back at the station almost immediately.

Other agencies that have recently added or are adding the technology include the Lawrence Police Department in Indiana, the Benton Police Department in Arkansas, and the Kissimmee Police Department in Florida.
