Tapi kerajaan mempunyai masalah peruntukan kewangan untuk memasang kamera video pada kereta peronda polis. Sedangkan harga kamera video yang canggih hanya sekitar RM 12,786.12 satu set yang lengkap.
Dengan RM 8 Billion , sebanyak 625,684 buah kereta peronda polis boleh dipasang dengan kamera video. Ada kah kereta polis sebanyak tu ?
Mana lagi penting , kereta perisai atau kereta peronda polis ?
Mana lagi penting ? Nyawa anggota tentera, nyawa anggota polis atau nyawa orang awam ?
Berbelanjalah dengan bijak RM 8 Billion tersebut.
Peguam Negara arah siasatan lanjut

Terdahulu, Ketua Polis Negara, Tan Sri Musa Hassan memaklumkan, kertas siasatan kes membabitkan pelajar terbabit telah diserahkan kepada Timbalan Pendakwa Raya (DPP) untuk tindakan selanjutnya.
KATANYA, BELIAU SEBELUM INI PERNAH MENCADANGKAN KEPADA KERAJAAN UNTUK MEMASANG KAMERA VIDEO PADA KERETA PERONDA SEJAK 2006 BAGI MEMUDAHKAN PIHAKNYA MEREKOD SERTA MENGENAL PASTI SEBARANG INSIDEN YANG BERLAKU MELIBATKAN ANGGOTA POLIS DAN ORANG AWAM.
BAGAIMANAPUN, UJAR BELIAU, CADANGAN ITU TIDAK DAPAT DILAKSANAKAN EKORAN MASALAH PERUNTUKAN KEWANGAN KERAJAAN.

The In-Car Camera: Value and Impact
In the late 1990s, lawsuits alleging race-based traffic stops were being filed against state police and highway patrol agencies throughout the United States. In some instances, the courts ruled that racial profiling was occurring. These court findings strengthened the public perception that racial profiling by police did occur and weakened the public's confidence in the police.
If it was occurring, state police executives sought proactive steps to stop biased policing and to restore the public confidence in the police. Many departments deployed the in-car video camera to record traffic stops and other encounters with the public. In the spirit of building public trust, the in-car camera recording provides an unbiased account of events that allow citizens and others to view what actually occurred during encounters that have been called into question. Agencies and others report that such evidence has been invaluable and that the benefits of the in-car video camera far exceeded the original goals.
COPS Office Funding
In an effort to aid state police agencies confronted with allegations of racial profiling and other complaints, the Department of Justice's Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) created the In-Car Camera Incentive Program. The program provided financial aid to state police and highway patrol agencies for the sole purpose of purchasing and installing in-car camera systems. The first federal awards were dispersed in 2000, and, by the end of 2003, 47 states and the District of Columbia had received a total of more than 21 million dollars in federal assistance for the purchase of in-car cameras.
