That sounds most logical from a policy angle, say with a 1 or 2 hour loop if memory was short?

.. BUT they'd probably have to carry around a 4 pound battery to make them last a 12 hour shift .. charging on the go would make it more likely they got left in the car in an emergency or ripped off their catch if it was a wire charger etc.

I think we WILL see your idea implemented as (battery and other) technology advances of course, maybe even a remote upload (from wifi in the cruiser?) so recordings cannot be erased
