What are Body Worn Cameras and Badges?
It is estimated that 6.8 million people in the United Kingdom are lone workers, which is 22% of the 31.2m Uk working population. Recordable body worn camera systems can ensure there is always a line of communication open for lone workers when they are carrying out their duties in isolation, or within an environment where they are without supervision.
A digital body-worn body camera (BWC) can be utilised as a standalone device or linked with a hand portable two-way radio system.
