Body-worn cameras in use at HS2 Sites

 

Body Worn Cameras increase security for a leading Facility Management client

Our client is a leading Facility Management company in the UK. By investing in technology, they ensure they are at the cutting edge of development within facilities services, enabling them to offer customers a comprehensive range of technology-led services.

The PROBLEM

Increase security for leading FM client in UK          

Our client supplies facilities to Europe’s largest civil engineering project, HS2. We were contacted with a requirement to source and supply body-worn cameras for over 470 security officers to operate on 100 major construction sites, ultimately to record security incidents as a part of their total security provision service.

The challenge

Introduce Hytera VM580D body-worn camera 

The Hytera VM580D is a new generation of smart, ultra-thin 4G body-worn cameras (BWC). It features nationwide Push-to-talk (PTT) communication over public and PMR networks, best-in-class audio performance, high-definition (HD) video shooting, and ergonomic design. With its slim profile (measuring 20 mm thickness and weighing just 172g) the VM580D fits easily in your hand or on uniform. It is the most effective product on the market for our client.

The BENEFITS

Implementing a reliable system in the hour of need

During the project’s growth, the rise in crime across the contract platform meant that the requirement to combat theft and protesting also grew. Our client has found that implementing the BWCs across the construction sites on HS2 has helped deter and prevent aggression, providing a safer, improved working environment for their end users.

Testimonial

Given the high profile and sensitive nature of HS2, the ability to provide detailed data of daily security-related incidents is vital to assist in combatting theft, protesting and general criminal activity.
