When the sheriff’s deputy stops a person for drunken driving or is taking a person to the jail, he’ll flip on a small portable camera to record everything that happens.

The camera is about three inches long and Deputy Jason Wools often clips it to his uniform to record traffic stops while working the night shift. The videos he records can help him review sobriety tests, prove that a person was yelling or fighting with him or other officers or capture confessions made by people on their way to the jail.

Since his sport-utility vehicle doesn’t have an in-car camera, Wools relies on his portable camera to capture what happens when he’s out doing his job.
