All of Armed Guard Private Security Officers are required to wear their department issued Body Worn Cameras and activate the camera prior to the contact with any member of the public. These cameras are real cameras and of equal or better quality than most law enforcement agencies.
The cameras track the officers location, have 2k resolution and the officer is required to download check the Body Worn Camera in at the beginning and the end of each shift so the footage can be stored pursuant to the organization retention policies.
There are many benefits from ensuring that each and everyone of our officers are equipped with the BWC. We routinely use the contacts made from officers in the field to help better train officers with dealing with the public. Furthermore, it's an added layer of protection for our client and assurance for law enforcement that we acted correctly.
