Goetzalso says the camera will help in drug busts.

"Whenwe find drugs in a vehicle, there's no question because this will pick upeverything that I find when I search a vehicle," he said. "If I pull marijuanaout of a center console, there's no question where it came from…Since thecamera doesn't lie, criminals can't lie about what happens on the scene."
