Major UK police force deploys Motorola BWV

Police Scotland is deploying ten and a half thousand body worn video cameras to its officers, as provided by Motorola Solutions.

According to figures quoted by the company, the contract to roll-out the VB400 devices is worth around £13.3 million. Footage from the cameras will be automatically uploaded to Motorola’s VideoManager suite, “for secure storage that is tracked and auditable.”

Discussing the roll-out, Police Scotland deputy chief constable, Jane Connors, said: “The introduction of body worn video will transform policing in Scotland, and a national roll-out is a key priority. [BWV] can significantly enhance public confidence and support officer and public safety by providing effective and transparent evidence of police and public actions.

“Body worn video will also improve the quality of evidence presented in court, to deliver faster justice for victims by increasing early guilty pleas.”

Motorola senior vice president for international sales, Mark Schmidl, said: “We are proud to support Police Scotland with its nationwide deployment of the VB400 body camera, an innovative technology solution developed in Scotland that will help to make communities safer.”
