Last Monday, 24th October saw the start of Body Worn Video(BWV) trial by police officers in Westminster.
What is BWV?
BWV cameras are small, visible devices that are worn attached to the officers’ uniform (usually on the chest). They are used to capture both video and audio evidence when officers are attending all types of incidents. The position of the camera allows for those viewing the footage to see the situation from the officer's perspective. The camera acts as an independent witness to police actions and interactions.
