Improving Security

Body Worn Cameras for Security Staff

Security staff are the first line of protection for a wide range of industries and are often called upon to deal with the most challenging situations. 

Working in public-facing and high-pressure environments, they are all too often subjected to unacceptable levels of verbal and physical abuse.

Body cameras significantly enhance the safety of your security teams, helping to capture visual and audio evidence of incidents that occur whilst boosting their confidence in dealing with complex situations. 

Without the presence of a Body Camera, it's impossible for a security team to learn from difficult situations or secure the evidence they need for prosecutions.

WCCTV provides UK-manufactured body cameras, supported by Evidence Management Software, multi-unit docking stations, and mounting accessories to attach the cameras to any type of clothing.

The cameras are incredibly easy to use, and capture video evidence at the push of a button.

Enhancing Safety

Why should Security Staff use Body Cams?

The statistics regarding verbal and physical abuse directed towards security staff are startling, a study found that:

  • 36% of frontline security staff are physically assaulted every month

  • 51% are verbally abused every time they work

  • 57% say that an incident has affected their mental health after an event

  • 86% of security workers felt that the levels of violence they see and experience had increased in the last five years

The most troubling statistic of all, though, is that 65% of those surveyed felt that physical and verbal abuse was inevitable in their line of work. 

At WCCTV, we don't believe anyone should have to suffer these unacceptable levels of abuse and our body cameras are proven to have a range of transformative benefits in a security setting. They include:

  • Reduction in complaints and false allegations

  • Deescalation of aggressive situations

  • Video evidence to support prosecutions

  • Retrospective training and analysis opportunities

  • Improved confidence in public interactions

  • Increased transparency in all situations
