What Industries Use Body Cameras?

Body cameras are typically worn by employees who come in contact with the public regularly. They are ideal devices in providing a deterrent for abusive members of the public. Where talking is not enough to deescalate a situation, a body camera can remove the threat just by simply making the abusive individual think twice about their behaviour whilst being filmed. At Wall to Wall Communication, we believe our range of Hytera Body Cameras are perfect for a variety of industries including:

Construction

Construction sites are often high-value targets for organised crime because they usually store expensive equipment on-site. Our Hytera body cameras can offer a great resource for security guards on building sites because they can record any suspicious activity, which can be reported and used as evidence. 

Hospitality, Leisure and Events

These industries are often difficult to manage because they usually involve a lot of people in small spaces. Often people consume alcohol, which can lead to unruly behaviour and can result in violence. To protect your staff at these events, body cameras are used to prevent and deter violent situations from occurring and if they do, footage of the individuals can be used as evidence.

Security

As with the event industry, body cameras are used to deter and prevent violent situations from occurring. As people in the security industry are more likely to be involved in violent situations, these devices are ideal for ensuring that professionalism is maintained and that the trust of the general public is upheld. It also protects security staff from false accusations. 

Auction houses

Auction houses often are places where high-value items are bought and sold, which makes them an ideal target for organised crime. If there is a security team present in an auction house, it’s best to equip them with our Hytera body cameras because they can help the security team to monitor the crowd and to record any suspicious behaviour.

Transportation

Hytera body cameras are versatile pieces of equipment for security companies who are contracted to work on public transport because they will provide high-quality video footage, whatever the lighting quality is. This makes them perfect for recording fare dodgers, or for preventing members of public trespassing on transportation networks. Body cameras are also great at recording members of the public in tight, confined spaces.

Retailers

Major retailers are often victims of theft on a daily basis,  because of the high number of shoplifters that operate in their businesses. There can often be difficulty in prosecuting these perpetrators because of the lack of evidence. Hytera body cameras can catch them in the act and the evidence that these cameras collect can be used in a court of law. 

Hospitals

Hospital staff can often be subjected to violence from patients who are either intoxicated or decide that violence is the best way to communicate with staff. Therefore, security staff in hospitals are increasingly using body cameras as a means of protecting front-line NHS workers when they are on duty. It’s the ideal solution in preventing health care workers from being assaulted.
