Oakland Police Department is moving forward with plans to buy 350 tiny video cameras for officers to wear on their uniforms.

Officers showed ABC7 how the devices work and they clip-on and begin recording when the cover is opened.

The video is recorded on an internal hard drive and then uploaded to a server at the end of each shift.

The cameras would replace those mounted on police cars, using money already allocated for that system, plus some federal funding.

The price tag is more than $500,000.
