Coming soon! Roll out of new Body Worn Video Cameras (BWVC) to Custodial Sites
We are delighted to be able to announce that all custodial sites will be taking delivery of the new Axon 2 Body Worn Video Cameras as part of a Serco Justice and Immigration roll-out over the next few weeks.
These cameras will be replacing the existing Edisix cameras, and there will be many more of them than the current model for staff. This new model is used by our colleagues in Australia and, smaller, lighter and easier to use. These new cameras were also put to the test by the Met Police in London, who after successful trials undertook the world’s biggest roll-out of these body-worn cameras (22,000 units).
Other police and correctional authorities across the world, including Australian Federal Police, New York Police Department and Los Angeles Police Department, Fire and Rescue, have considered the Axon Body 2 cameras to be best value for money, robust and extremely reliable with a long battery life that lasts a whole shift.
These units have hands-free activation, a 2-minute pre-event buffer and intuitive interface, unlimited HD encrypted video, advanced audio and simple uploading to a complete and easy to use evidence management system. A tremendous benefit is that the high-quality footage is stored in a cloud based solution which means that evidence is kept secure from corruption and getting lost.
