Interior Ministry wants to make police cars ‘smart’

Interior Minister Robert Kaliňák has announced plans to outfit police cars with cameras, which, among other things, are designed to shield officers and drivers from suspicions of corruption, the TASR newswire wrote on February 7. The devices were successfully tested across Slovakia last year and proved useful during the transportation of large amounts of euros prior to the country's adoption of the new currency in 2009.

The devices were successfully tested across Slovakia last year and proved useful during the transportation of large amounts of euros prior to the country's adoption of the new currency in 2009.

The installed cameras will record what is happening in front of the police car, for example, verifying number plates and putting on record the writing out of fines. Other plans include installing a Global Positioning System, thereby turning vehicles into smart cars. TASR
