Improving Safety

Body Worn Cameras for Local Authorities and Civil Enforcement Teams

Our body cameras are proven to positively impact interactions between officers and the public by providing greater transparency and high-quality video evidence. 

The presence of a body camera helps reduce the physical and verbal abuse civil enforcement officers are subjected to and reduces false complaints.

WCCTV has over 20 years of experience working with local authority departments and is the UK's leading supplier of mobile surveillance systems for public space monitoring. 

We understand the unique challenges your teams face daily and have used our knowledge and experience to create a range of body worn video solutions that perfectly match local authority requirements. 

Our market-leading body cameras have been designed for public interaction situations. They reduce conflict, increase transparency, and improve officers' confidence in any situation.

Reducing Aggressive Situations

Why should Local Authorities and Councils use Body Cams?

Public realm enforcement officers, lone and vulnerable workers are subjected to unacceptable levels of abuse. The proportionate use of body worn cameras has provided an increased level of safety, reassurance and evidence gathering.

Key uses for Body Worn Cameras across Local Authorities include:

  • Parking enforcement

  • Environmental enforcement

  • Street scene management

  • Lone worker protection

  • Town centre management

Given that the increase in abuse these workers receive has only increased over the years, the importance of deploying body cameras to protect these workers has been heightened.
