According to an unnamed police source cited by a Chuncheng Wanbao report, police have had difficulty collecting evidence at the scene of "spontaneous mass incidents" (群体性突发事件).
The source said that the cameras – which also come with a hand-held LCD monitor and mobile hard drive – will help with evidence collection in such situations and also reduce the chances of attacks on police.
Should the cap-mounted camera trial prove successful and be implemented citywide, Kunming will be quite well-covered by cameras. Over the last two months, several thousand video cameras mounted on blue and white poles have been installed throughout the city.
