Role Of Body Worn Cameras
Body-Worn Cameras, as the term implies are explicitly designed to be mounted on an individual to capture photographic/video and audio footage whilst leaving the individual free to carry out their normal duties or tasks.
Initially used by law enforcement officers, BWCs have gained traction in various other areas including event management, security patrols, retail, and stewarding. The footage is even used to revisit certain scenarios to evaluate what they could have done better and to train others.
The features and functions available make it the ideal equipment to help with crime detection, evidence collection and protection for recording a situation by an individual. Let’s visit how these are used in three case scenarios—before, during & after the event.
Before the Incident
It is a common misconception that equipment like the BWCs will have no use until an unlawful /incident event happens. However, its sheer existence can assist in deterring incidents altogether.
Usage data reveals BWCs that people tend to be more wary of their actions when they realise they can be recorded with the touch of a button. It has also proved its worth in de-escalating a situation. People become less violent and display less aggression when they know they are being recorded, minimising the chances of crime before it even happens.
During the incident
By anticipating the beginning of the event and simply pressing the record button, you can record the entire incident in a variety of resolutions up to 1080p with a 140 Viewing Angle, Allowing the individual to record the entire incident the and captures the necessary evidence.
After the incident
Collecting real time evidence is pivotal in resolving any incident.
