Starting this week, Canyon police will wear point-of-view cameras.

The cameras, mounted near or on the head, are different than body cameras, which are mounted on the shirt, because they record what is happening from the officer’s perspective, Canyon Police Chief Dale Davis said.

The cameras can be attached to a mounting band that fits around an officer’s head, or on sunglasses, a lapel or a shirt collar. Canyon patrol officers will begin using the headband and sunglasses mounts this week, Davis said.
