A TOP COP from New Jersey has agreed to allow an ID chip to be implanted in his arm.

The Police Chief of Bergen County, New Jersey, Jack Schmidig was injected in the arm with a VeriChip implantable ID-chip, according to spinsters from VeriChip.

The chip transmits a unique 16-digit ID number via radio frequency so that if Jack takes a bullet walking to his desk in the morning, all his medical records will be available when he shows up at hosptial.

Of course the hospital he shows up at will have to know that he has the chip, and be equipped with the special scanners to read it. However we are sure it is all worth while. µ
