Body worn cameras incorporate a camera, microphone and other technology to enable the recording of audio and video and the subsequent sharing and storage of the recordings.
Many organisations worldwide are benefiting from the positive advantages of body worn camera technology, however without adequate knowledge, training and technical capability of the equipment there can be challenges relating to privacy, data security and video integrity.
The standard has been designed for organisations such as:
Building management companies
Activities where Body Worn Cameras may be deployed include:
Emergency service response
Night-time economy operations (eg licensed premises)
The Code of Practice explores device recommendations such as functionality, weight, image quality, encryption and data management.
It also covers aspects of body worn video data management, including data integrity, audit trails, storage and sharing.
It also addresses ongoing training requirements of the end users of body worn cameras.
