Warwick Police add cameras to sunglasses

Warwick Police have some cool new shades that help officers on duty. 

The police department originally purchased a body camera in April, but later decided the sunglasses with built in cameras would be best.

Chief Dustin Stephenson says they help with traffic stops and help officers resolve complaints quicker.

"It gives you perspective of what we see the interaction of the officer and the person your dealing with. Whether it's inside a residence, on the side of the road, in a vehicle whatever it is, it just helps," said officer Michael Smith.

The glasses were also cheaper. They cost the department about $99, compared to the body cameras that cost $295.

Officers can pop off the shades, so they can still use the camera glasses at night.
