The Retail Risk conference is attended by more retail risk and loss prevention professionals, around the world, than any other.
One of the biggest challenges currently facing retailers is preventing crime against their business, and dealing with the aftermath when it does occur.
Recent statistics released by the ACS suggest that 72% of all retail workers have experienced verbal abuse whilst at work, with 39% of staff having suffered an injury as the result of assault or other crime - a staggering total of 13,437 injuries.
Retailers surveyed indicated that violence against their staff was their number one concern, with staff suffering from the emotional and physical effects these confrontations cause and generally feeling unsafe in stores.
Body Worn Cameras are proven to reduce conflict, improve personal safety and help secure criminal prosecutions by providing encrypted and tamper-proof video and audio evidence.
WCCTV will demonstrate the multi-award-winning Body Worn Camera (Connect) – a body camera that delivers live transmission of video, audio, real-time alerts and GPS information via 4G/3G and Wi-Fi connectivity.
This allows a remote connection to a body worn camera in the field, allowing an operator to view live video, communicate with the wearer via two-way audio and understand their position via GPS.
Alternatively, the wearer of the device can send an alert back to a control room, monitoring station or command centre with their live video, location details and a request for assistance.
The WCCTV Body Worn Camera (Connect) is a single unit, with no external cables, battery packs, transmission units or cumbersome tethering to third-party mobile devices.
WCCTV will also demonstrate the Body Worn Camera (Record), a market leading body camera offering HD video (up to 1080p), Wi-Fi connectivity, GPS and best-in-class functionality including 17-hour battery life and 128GB recording capacity.
