Smart Contact lenses that record and report?

In the world of Google Glass and contact lenses that measure glucose levels, might we be able to create contact lenses that can ensure safety and help law enforcement to better capture offenders.

Google, known already for Google Glass, recently acquired a biotech company that has developed a contact lens that includes a blood glucose testing mechanism for diabetic patients.

Image then if we marry the surveillance technology of Google Glass with the innovation of contact lenses that would be widely ditributed to all girls and women to help ensure that offenders would be caught or at least widely publically shamed?

A little Big Brother...but if we could figure out a means to insure privacy and save lives, that could be a pretty powerful weapon against violence.
