When asked which types of video technologies are most important to law enforcement over the next few years, officers overwhelmingly named body-worn cameras. This raises the question: Are departments ready to handle these devices?
Managing the new hardware and data associated with body-worn cameras is a serious responsibility for departments, and ensuring that officers are properly trained to use these tools is another major area of focus. Departments that implement body-worn cameras without comprehensive policies and training in place may end up overwhelmed.
Workforce management software designed specifically for public safety can ease the strain of body-worn camera adoption. From equipment management to training scheduling, this type of web-based software can help to keep departments on track when dealing with the new hardware.
Like any new technology, body-worn cameras have the potential to transform the field of policing. To ensure a successful implementation, agencies must carefully consider developing body-worn camera policies and practices.
