Undercover agents do not have to be 'wired' anymore. Designed by UK company WCCTV for law enforcement and security personnel, the 3G Covert Backpack is perfect for surveillance (or other ideas some twisted minds will surely use it for).

The central unit of the body-worn equipment uses a robust compact Flash card for digital, evidential quality recording of agents' video and audio footage. Using 3G mobile phone technology, data can be remotely monitored by a supervisor, who can evaluate the situation in real-time and dispatch backup assistance or advise the agent on possible courses of action on the spot. An optional GPS receiver can be integrated which tracks and maps the exact location of agents in the field. A Panic Alarm button allows agents to notify the supervisor that they need immediate assistance. At the end of an operation, data can easily be backed up for evidential purposes, reducing the need for paperwork.

Britain is already notorious for having the most CCTVs per head of population - and this WCCTV will surely help increase that number.
