Police POV on truTV

Police POV is an American documentary television series that airs on TruTV and shows police officers in action from a unique perspective: as if the viewer is watching the action through the eyes of the police officer (or from their Point of View.) While it is common practice for police activities to be recorded for training purposes or to be used in a trial, the act is most often performed with fixed cameras mounted on the dashboard of a police vehicle or through the use of a videographer holding a hand-held camera. Police POV instead uses headset-style cameras called a AXON camera with the recording lens close enough to the wearer's eye to give the viewer a direct sightline of the events. The show features officers from the Cincinnati, Fort Smith, and Chattanooga police departments.
