On February 17th 2022, Audax Body Worn cameras were featured on France’s popular TF1 at Lunchtime. The piece showed how they are being used by the Police Municipale of LE BARCARÈS, which is in the Sud de la France.
Take a look below at a rough translation of the report…
- The cameras are clearly visible to the members of the public.
- After giving a warning, they are easy to turn on with a press of the front button.
- In summer our population goes form 6,000 to 100,000 and with all of the tourists the “problems” increase.
- The camera is very reassuring for us the police and supports us to evidence our professionalism.
- It allows us to show our actions are easily justifiable.
- The cameras are fully supported by the inhabitants.
- 1st interview -They provide reassurance.
- 2nd Interview – They should have been actioned a long time ago. Allows us to see things differently and decrease petty crime.
- The cameras cover a full shift of 8 hours and on return to the Police station the videos are immediately downloaded onto the server via the docking station.
- The docking Station is for downloading the video and for recharging the batteries.
- The Police officers do not touch or see the videos everything is automatic and very transparent.
- The Police Officers have no access to the images. They can’t see them and thus can’t alter them.
- Videos are kept for 6 months and can be used in court if required.
