More than 2,800 British Transport Police (BTP) officers will be given body-worn cameras following a successful trial. All frontline officers, from police community support officers to inspectors, will be issued with a camera once they have completed a training course. The rollout is expected to be finished by the end of March next year. Assistant Chief Constable Paul Brogden said: “These cameras will help our officers in the many challenging situations they face every single day. “The presence of a body worn camera can help diffuse situations without the need for force, and can help speed up the justice system. “This is BTP using cutting edge technology to make sure we’re protecting the public in the best way possible.”
