Body-Worn Video Cameras for Transport Police, Civil Security, Enforcement & Lone Workers
Protecting the Professional – Body worn video cameras are set to transform the face of 21st century policing. This has significant implications for adjacent transport security and enforcement sectors. Body-mounted video technology is proven to act effectively and cost-efficiently as both a behavioural deterrent and admissible evidence-capture tool.
Leading UK Manufacturer – Pinnacle Response Ltd are a leading UK body camera hardware manufacturer. We have specialised in body-worn camera products since 2007. Our cameras are favoured by a number of UK police forces and district councils. We have an extensive client base that straddles a broad range of civil and private security and enforcement agencies.
Tested and Measured – Studies have indicated that the use of body cameras can deter crime, encourage compliance, reduce complaints and improve conviction rates. The technology has been proven to save time and money throughout the judicial process by providing incontrovertible evidence using localised high definition audio and video capture. Our hardware protects and supports the airport and airline industry professional; as a deterrent in the first instance, thereafter a reporting then evidential tool. Our PR5 body-worn camera is the most intuitive body camera unit on the market.
Airport Body Cameras
Body cameras reduce use of force incidents and complaints against enforcement officers.
Body cameras proven to de-escalate hostile encounters.
The Rialto police force in California recently published results from a 12 month study of the use of body cameras and their impact on confrontations with the public. They reported a 59% drop in use of force incidents and an 89% reduction in complaints against the police. These findings are corroborated by similar studies in the UK and offer significant implications for airport security, personnel at the public interface and lone workers.
Modified behaviour and evidentially critical material.
The Rialto study extrapolates that knowledge of being watched (and by extension recorded) increases self-awareness. Self-awareness prompts compliant or prosocial behaviour. In short, evidence capture is just one benefit of deploying body cameras on security and enforcement personnel. The technology is perhaps most effective at deescalating hostile situations on the frontline by encouraging cooperative conduct.
