The police in New York use cameras that continuously capture what is happening. That a cop detains criminals, that donuts are cracking – everything is fixed. But one of the camera models showed a serious defect, which led to a massive recall of these devices.
While the officer was on duty, one copy of the device began to smoke. He dropped the gadget to the ground, and the camera flashed. The officer did not receive injuries. But the local police department took the problem seriously and ordered not to use all the available cameras of this modification – and that’s 2990 copies. In total, at the disposal of the police of New York 15.5 thousand cameras.
Now experts are investigating the causes of the incident with the camera.
