The Dover Police Department
has equipped their marked patrol vehicles with in-car video and
audio equipment. This is a very key piece of equipment that not
only ensures the safety of the Police Officer on the traffic stop
by telling the date, time, and name of the officer on the video
screen but also has helped in solving citizen complaints that
have arisen in the past. We not only use the video to solve complaints
but also to ensure our officers maintain their professionalism
at all times, and to judge their demeanor and tactics while on
