What Are Body Worn Cameras?

A body worn camera, also referred to as a bodycam is a wearable video recording device. Typically, they comprise a camera, microphone and rechargeable battery with data storage that is either integrated or is a separate unit connected to the camera unit.

How Does a Body Camera Work?

Bodycams are usually clipped to the user’s chest, shoulder or worn as a headset with ‘push to record’ functionality that is controlled by the user. The camera will normally have a set of lights to indicate that it is on and recording.

Why Use a Body Worn Camera?

Body Worn Cameras are seen as one way to address the challenges law enforcement encounter. The technology offers real-time or recorded information when used by officers on assignments that bring them into contact with members of the community. They also provide law enforcement with a mobile surveillance tool to promote officer safety and efficiency and ultimately deter crime.
