The BWVSG meetings have grown in popularity year on year and have attracted some of the most experienced BWV experts in the world as guest speakers. Ensure you book your place as soon as possible to not miss out on this opportunity.
The theme of the day will be: ‘Body Worn Video – planning for success’. As BWV becomes more widely used, how do we prepare for, implement and measure success?
Our speakers will be:
• Dr. Barak Ariel (Cambridge University). Barak conducted the Rialto study in the USA; the first major study of BWV. Barak will be talking about how to measure the success of your use of BWV.
• Insp. Steve Goodier (Hampshire). Steve will be talking about the new National Guidance, and giving an overview of the national situation. He will also be talking about scaling up, as Hampshire prepare to make BWV personal issue for their officers.
• Patricia Rich (Staffordshire). Patricia is managing the roll-out of BWV with Staffordshire Police, after a successful implementation, Body Worn Video is an everyday norm for Staffordshire Police.
• Tom Ellis (Portsmouth University). Tom will talk about Project Hyperion, the year-long personal issue study on the Isle of Wight, and the most significant trial of BWV in the UK to date.
• Matthew Wroughton (West Midlands Fire Service). Matthew will describe how the fire service is using BWV in tackling emergency situations, and in training.
