Talk about an “explosive account”- the NYPD have pulled 2,990 Vievu body cameras after one exploded while a Staten Island officer was wearing it.
The camera -a LE-5 model- began smoking before it exploded, eventually detaching itself from the officer and catching fire after it hit the ground.
According to the Daily Mail, the LE-5s have since been pulled, with Police Commissioner James O’Neill saying the recall was one of caution, and that all officers with LE-5s are to return them to their respective commands at once.
Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that the 34,000-member NYPD will be issued over 20,000 cameras by the end of the year.
