Rhode Island state police say insurance giant MetLife Inc. is donating 130 digital cameras to strengthen police efforts to prevent and deter criminal activity, including insurance fraud.

State Police Superintendent Col. Steven O'Donnell is set to announce the donation at a press conference scheduled for Monday with Rhode Island executives of the insurance company.

The state police chief says the cameras will help investigators record an incident in real time. He says this will help troopers and insurance companies streamline the documentation process for accidents.
