Body Worn Cameras

Body Worn Cameras

Although they are most known for their use in the police, body-worn cameras are suitable for a range of sectors and applications. Organisations that use body-worn cameras include:

  • Pubs, bars, and nightclubs
  • Hotels
  • Retail Businesses
  • Schools, Colleges and Universities
  • Hospitals
  • Home Care Providers
  • Manufacturing
  • Businesses
  • Private Security Companies
  • Public Transport
  • Emergency Services
  • Police

Body-worn cameras provide reassurance and accountability for both customer facing and security staff. They also reassure members of the public that due process and accountability standards are being followed. For example these body worn cameras have provided police officers with clearer evidence and transparency when dealing with offences.

Many organisations also use body-worn cameras to track and log team members’ activities for training and development purposes, and to improve security for lone-working staff.

Reduced risk of violence and anti-social behaviour

The noticeable presence of the camera has an effect in itself, suggesting greater accountability and the anticipation of consequences for wrongdoing. Put simply, people tend to moderate their behaviour if they believe it is being recorded. This usually results in less aggressive encounters and more cooperative engagement. Psychologists call this the “observer effect”, and it has safety effects in real terms. The reduction in the application of force means that injury and stress to both security employees and detainees are reduced.

Footage for evidence

Captured footage also aids in investigation and conviction processes, providing hard evidence of actions that would be otherwise difficult to verify. With video material, it is much simpler to confirm what happened and who was responsible. In short, these cameras tell the truth, and can easily disprove false or misleading accusations. What’s more, if complaints do arise about security staff handling, video footage provides reliable data to confirm or refute claims. This simplifies formal complaints processes and reduces paperwork and evidence gathering.
