Bob Surgenor Videos
In 1987, Robert R. Surgenor Sr. installed a video camera on the dashboard of his police cruiser. During his years on the road, he compiled over 250 hours of video footage, including high speed chases, DWI arrests, and other police related cases. In 1988, Surgenor became the first police officer in the world to capture a complete high-speed stolen car chase of robbery suspects ever videotaped in the world.
Since his retirement from the police department in 2001, Surgenor has continued to use much of his video footage in his presentations to parents, police departments, judges, and other civic groups.
