Police Using New ‘Situational Awareness’ Body Cameras


From Mississippi via Government Security News comes word that police use of body cameras is expanding from clip-on push-button cameras to automatic situational awareness cameras that “turn on automatically in key situations and communicate with other officers and supervisors”.

“Both the BodyWorn camera and the Rocket IoT, singularly or in conjunction,” the Government Security post explains, “utilize their unique communication capabilities to activate specific recording triggers that automatically initiate video recording. These triggers are set by the Department’s individual recording policies—including a built-in accelerometer, prone positioning, light bar sensors in concert with door opening, rapid motion, GeoFence entry, etc.— and can be updated at any time via their video management system, AVaiL Web™. The BodyWorn camera and the Rocket IoT system offer unique integration with real-time GPS reporting of officer and vehicle, auto-related video for synchronized video playback, dockless evidence offload and more.”
