Lancashire Constabulary has rolled-out Motorola Solutions’ 2100 VB400 body-worn cameras.
According to Motorola, the cameras will be used across the force, alongside a back-end evidence management software solution. The devices are also integrated into the company’s mobile working application, Pronto, enabling officers to tag recordings while in the field.
Other features on the cameras include Wi-Fi streaming and Bluetooth sensor monitoring.
Speaking of the deployment, Lancashire chief inspector Dave Hannan said: “This investment is about giving our officers the best tools for the job. This technology will be a vital tool in bringing offenders to justice, especially those who take part in crime that is more difficult to prosecute, such as domestic abuse and public order offences.”
Motorola country manager, UK and Ireland, Fergus Mayne, said: “Integrated body-worn camera solutions are a vital and objective tool for improving the safety of officers and the public. The integration with Pronto takes seamless policing to the next level and ensures end-to-end workflows.”
