Comments Sought on Police Vehicle Camera Standards

The U.S. government is seeking comment on the latest version of its proposed standards for police vehicle audio and video equipment.

On Aug. 22, 2011, the Department of Justice (DoJ) posted a Federal Register notice, “Vehicular Digital Multimedia Evidence Recording System (VDMERS) Standard, Certification Program Requirements, and Selection and Application Guide,” announcing that the DoJ, the Office of Justice Programs, and the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) have made available to the general public three draft documents related to VDMERS used by law enforcement agencies:

Draft VDMERS Standard for Law Enforcement
Draft Law Enforcement VDMERS Certification Program Requirements
Draft Law Enforcement VDMERS Selection and Application Guide

The notice says, “The opportunity to provide comments on these documents is open to industry technical representatives, law enforcement agencies and organizations, research, development and scientific communities, and all other stakeholders and interested parties.” The deadline for comments is Sept. 21, 2011.
