MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – February 18, 2019 – The Vernon Police Department has implemented the FACT Duty™ Weapon-Mounted Camera (WMC™) from Viridian® Weapon Technologies.

Viridian found itself as part of news coverage in Alabama this past week surrounding the tragic Thanksgiving officer-involved shooting at a mall near Birmingham. In light of the recent news, associated with the Alabama Attorney General report and decision not to charge the involved police officer, that the police Body Cameras were not activated prior to the shooting, media outlets have inquired about our Weapon Mounted Camera. There had been previous Birmingham-area media coverage of the Viridian WMC adopted by other Alabama agencies, which has informed Alabama viewers that our device records automatically when the officer’s gun is drawn, and we believe would have captured this event.
