The Importance of Body-Worn Video
How much is the security and safety of your staff and customers worth to you? According to the Morning Advisor, CCTV and Body-Worn Video cameras are becoming increasingly necessary at many of the major bar and night-club chains, this includes the Stonegate Pub Company, currently operating at 772 sites across the UK. Stonegate have so far invested £27.5M in the protection and safety of their club/pub goers. As it stands they now have 50 sites operating BWV cameras at a cost of approximately £100,000, showing the strength of their conviction towards public and staff safety.
The Pinnacle Response PR6 body-worn cameras are vital in helping Stonegate to protect their punters and aids with liaising with the community schemes in operation such as National PubWatch. National PubWatch is a voluntary organisation with programmes that encourage pubs to work together to help decrease crime and anti-social behaviour in the local area. The initiative has been met with relative success within a short period of time from deployment of the schemes.
According to a licencing specialist, the inclusion of CCTV and Body-Worn Video cameras have become commonplace throughout the industry when applying for a pub licence. In addition to capturing incident driven footage, the cameras will eliminate any false accusations towards the behaviour of the professional camera wearer and fellow staff.
