Case study Bradford Police Patrols to use Body Worn Video Cameras
Bradford, Bowling and Barkerend Neighbourhood Policing Teams have been using Body Worn Video Cameras paid for by Bradford Community Housing Association Accent Housing. These policing teams have now introduced Body Worn Video Cameras to assist with their patrols. These will enable officers to record evidence as and when an incident occurs.
Inspector Andy Gallant has said “West Yorkshire Police recognises the benefits of Body Worn cameras and has been utilising a similar product for “blue light.” This is different because it is being used by conventional neighbourhood policing officers going out into the local community and not necessarily responding to incidents. It is a first for the district.” This district introduced Body Worn Cameras to help reduce anti social behaviour and to reassure the public that by capturing and recording evidence it would reduce levels of disruption in the area. Within hours of the cameras being introduced they were used in a drugs warrant. The Body Worn Cameras allowed the officers to capture real time evidence which they could play in court.
Inspector Gallant has also stated that, “they are a deterrent because they are there and take away the opportunity to offend.” Studies have found that when officers were using Body Worn Cameras that are clearly marked with CCTV on them it diffused the situation once the individual was aware they were being recorded. It not only has diffused many situations, it has also increased the number of guilty pleas by up to 80% when the offender became aware of the video evidence.
Accent’s Anti-social Behaviour Officer Tim Bamber said: “We are committed to making a difference in the communities we work in and we are confident that the new CCTV equipment we have provided will do just that by helping to prevent and tackle anti-social behaviour and improve our residents’ homes and lives in the process.”
