Body Worn Video Steering Group
Body-worn video cameras represent a recent technology development that is being driven by the Home Office and by operational requirements for widespread adoption within the police and other emergency services.
While public perception of the usefulness of the technology is influenced by media reports of its use the operational benefits are much wider. There are particular benefits in areas such as staff protection from crime, and automated evidence gathering during an incident – leading to a higher rate of guilty pleas.
