Traditionally used within a public sector environment (police, paramedics, firefighters), Radiocoms are now seeing more frequent requests from the private sector (security, waste & recycling, retail).
The use of body worn cameras is one of the most effective ways to assess risk before an incident occurs and they are particularly useful in high-risk situations where there is a strong likelihood of attack or altercation.
Unfortunately, body worn cameras are not currently being used frequently enough to protect employees from these kinds of attacks despite the fact that their use has been shown to reduce violence.
1. Increased transparency:
Body cameras provide an objective, time stamped record of interactions between frontline teams and the public, creating a layer of transparency and accountability for both parties.
2. Improved professionalism:
Body cameras can help to reduce misconduct by documenting interactions and providing a visual record of your employees interactions. This can help to ensure that employees maintain a professional demeanour whilst working with the public.
3. Reduced use of force:
By providing frontline workers with body worn cameras employees can be better protected while still being able to conduct their duties without fear of reprisal or injury. Body cameras can also serve as a deterrent to excessive force and can help to provide crucial evidence when needed.
I can speak from personal experience that just having a body cam there makes me feel so much safer. Just knowing I have it to hand it gives me the confidence that whatever happens is recorded for evidence. People notice it too, it stops stuff from even happening in the first place.

4. More accurate record keeping:
Body cameras provide an accurate and detailed record of interactions, making it easier to document incidents and evidence for criminal investigations and, in some cases, exonerate employees from allegations of misconduct.
5. Improved public relations:
Body cameras can help to promote trust between frontline workers and the public, as it can help to show that your team are acting professionally and within the law.
