BWV to cover all England’s strategic roads

National Highways has announced plans to equip traffic officers across 4,300 miles of roads with VB400 body-worn video cameras (BWV) from Motorola Solutions.

Officers will wear the body-worn cameras while conducting patrols across England’s strategic road network (SRN) which comprises 4,300 miles of motorway and major roads in England.

According to National Highways its traffic officers help to keep traffic flowing smoothly and are responsible for keeping road users safe during more than four million journeys that they claim take place across England’s motorways and major roads each day.

Mel Clarke, customer service director of National Highways, said: “Our traffic officers patrol England’s motorways and major roads 24 hours a day, seven days a week and are at the front line to keep people safe and help the network run smoothly.

“The body-worn cameras protect citizens and our traffic officers and are now part of the officer’s uniform. This investment forms part of our commitment to maintaining the safety of England’s roads and providing greater operational visibility for our staff and the general public.”

The rugged VB400 is designed to withstand rigorous use in all situations and captures high-quality video and audio in all weather and light conditions according to Motorola. The deployment also included Motorola Solutions’ VideoManager evidence management software to upload and manage the recorded video securely in the cloud.
