Home Office release technical guidance for purchasing and deploying body-worn video

Posted on

The Home Office have published technical guidance that highlights the key issues for those interested in purchasing and deploying body-worn video (BWV) recording devices.

The document detail is as follows:

“This technical guidance highlights the key issues that should be considered by those interested in purchasing and deploying body-worn video (BWV) recording devices. It should also be of value to those who manufacture and supply BWV equipment, who wish to have a better understanding of the requirements that are important to the policing end user.

“The focus of this guidance is on the recording devices themselves, but it is equally important to put in place appropriate procedures and facilities for the transfer and management of the recordings. One of the key aims of this guidance is therefore to ensure that the video is recorded in a non-proprietary format that makes the subsequent storage, replay and sharing of the product within a centralised evidence management system straightforward, thus promoting interoperability.”
