VINTAGE 1983 FAIRHAVEN POLICE CRUISER DASHCAM! Officer Richard Claflin was probably the first in the region to initiate a dash cam in his cruiser in 1983. He taped every street in the Town Of Fairhaven in the fall of 1983. He did this to document what Fairhaven streets were like for others to see someday. Over 30 years later, the clips have been transferred and digitized in several 9 minute segments. All sections in town were covered. Original police calls can be heard on the cruisers radio. For those who weren't around town back then, I caution this is as boring as watching paint dry. But if you were around, the footage may show someone you knew, a familiar car or house or maybe even yourself. Guess where the clips were taken! MLBaron Historic Archives.
