Nearly 3,000 body cameras are being pulled off the streets after one exploded inside a Staten Island precinct overnight, NY1 has exclusively learned.
An officer picked up his body camera during the midnight shift early Sunday at the 121 Precinct on Staten Island and noticed there was smoke coming from the bottom of it. The officer took it off and the unit exploded.
The officer wasn’t injured, but it appears this was the result of a defect that causes the camera’s battery to ignite.
