Here are at Security One 2 One, we pay attention and take great care of every little detail when it comes to security and safety.
Our team invested considerable effort, conducted extensive research and devoted ample time to equip our guards with premium body-worn cameras.
Today we want to share with you more about our new security equipment: the process our team took to acquire it, what it is, and its importance.
What are Body Worn Cameras?
Body worn cameras are small cameras that are used to capture audio and video of encounters with the public.
They are typically attached to the uniform or tactical vest of a law enforcement or, in our case, a security guard.
They are designed to record events that occur while the security guard is on duty, providing evidence of interactions between the guard and the public.
The recordings can then be used for legal proceedings, training purposes, identify potential threats, or other purposes.
What is the Importance of Body Worn Cameras?
1. Protect our guards
They help increase the safety of our guards. They reduce aggression. hostile behaviour, inaccurate reports by members of the public made against our guards.
2. The recordings can be used as evidence
They are helpful in assisting in investigations of unlawful activities and in holding offenders to account, including by obtaining reliable information for evidentiary purposes.
3. Deter crime and violent behaviour
They help increase the security of members of the community. They reduce personal and property crime and deter undesirable behaviour.
Our Process of Acquiring New Security Equipment
This involves a number of hours of research on high-quality equipment to find the best one that would best suit our guards’ and clients’ needs.
2. Policy and Procedure
We have developed an extensive policy on body-worn cameras that covers Legislative Requirements, Scope and Objectives, and the Lawful Use of Recordings for the benefit of our client, our guards, and the entire team.
When we acquire new equipment, we make certain our security guards receive proper training on how to use them before they are put on duty.
Our security guards are given appropriate training regarding the lawful use of body-worn cameras from its compliance with the requirements of the Surveillance Devices Act 2007 down to the function of each button of the camera.
Security equipment is created to protect people and assets, but it can only do so if it is working properly. This is why it is important to us to regularly maintain our equipment to keep them in good condition and for our guards to use them routinely without a hitch.
We take every little detail with utmost importance
Security takes a lot of hard work and research in the background.
Our Security One 2 One team goes into it detail by detail for every process until we are certain it is the best equipment for our guards and clients.
We can ensure that the acquisition of new body-worn cameras is a success thanks to the cross-functional effort that required the collaboration of our team from different departments. We are committed to using modern technology to protect our clients and their assets. Our new body-worn cameras help us achieve this by providing even better security services.
