An urban patrol official in Changzhou, Jiangsu province, bought a pair of Google glasses to record his work, Yangtze Evening News reported on Monday.

Jiang Yifan, the urban patrol officer, or chengguan, posted a photo of himself wearing the glasses on his micro blog on Sunday morning, with text saying he bought the Google glasses to make a record of his work, in order to avoid misunderstandings with the public.

Jiang's photo drew much attention from netizens who questioned whether the expensive glasses were bought using public funds, but the chengguan team confirmed that Jiang paid for the glasses himself.
