PR6 Body worn cameras a continued success for Hull University Union
Body-worn cameras from Pinnacle Response have been recognised as a continued success for Hull University Union for over two years.
Hull University Union chose the Pinnacle PR6 body-worn camera to support security staff on campus during busy periods and events. With their status as NUS Students’ Union of the Year 2012, Hull University Union pride themselves in investing in services that promote student experience and welfare. Body worn cameras were introduced to promote a safe and secure environment for both staff and students within the campus grounds. With the campus offering a variety of food outlets, bars and their very own £3.6 million pound nightclub which received BEDA student nightclub of the year and has been awarded the prestigious ‘Best Bar None’ Award for 5 consecutive years. Providing a safe environment is key.
Body-worn video cameras have been proven to act as a deterrent for anti-social behaviour, often just verbal articulation that recording has commenced prompts modified behaviour, encouraging compliance in heightened situations. The low light and full HD capability of the PR6 body-worn camera is perfect for a growing University Union that is also becoming an established venue for live gigs on top of all other services available on campus for the students.
Colin Stanford, Managing Director at Pinnacle Response said: “We are proud to be the body-worn camera provider of choice for Hull University and numerous other Higher Education establishments. With a successful two year relationship showing positive results on campus, we look forward to a bright future together”.
Andy King, Commercial Services Director at Hull University Union said: “The PR6 body-worn cameras have been a fantastic addition to our security at Hull University Union. The cameras have acted as a real deterrent and the number of incidents has fallen since they have been introduced. In the event of an incident, the cameras can be quickly turned on and the quality of the footage and sound is second to none. The door security team have welcomed the introduction of the cameras as they give an independent record of the entire incident. Pinnacle have been very supportive throughout and we would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a body-worn camera solution in their venues”
