“All the studies examining body worn video cameras show they make a real difference in protecting frontline staff and the public,” explains Richie McBride, CEO of Edesix.
“Body Worn Cameras help prevent crime and anti-social behaviour, and record unbiased evidential footage for criminal prosecution. There can be no doubt that Security Camera deter aggression and in many cases eliminate the need to activate a panic alarm or radio during an incident. When members of the public know they are being recorded, their behaviour tends to change to a more positive attitude. BWC’s also help staff feel safer and more protected.”
