VIEVU Body Cameras
UPD recently purchased portable personal body cameras, VIEVU Wearable Video Cameras, to be worn by field personnel. You will soon see Officers wearing small cameras on the front of their uniforms.
Video documentation has become an integral and valued tool in law enforcement. Officers will significantly improve the efficiency of documentation and reduce time spent on written reports. Officers will gain increased accuracy and accountability in a wide variety of environments.
We hope to use video evidence in court proceedings to make that process more efficient and to give an accurate depiction of events. Use of personal body cameras should reduce potential civil liability and aid us in reviewing alleged officer misconduct.
