A state-of-the-art camera system has been donated to Police Scotland’s

Dive and Marine Unit in Aberdeen to aid the force with its underwater investigations.

The compact system will be used for taking photographs and recording video footage and will also act as a control station for operation, viewing and recording of colour or monochrome video cameras.

Dive supervisor Sandy Osborne said: “This camera is a fantastic asset to the team here in establishing whether any objects that have been lost or thrown into the sea are linked to any ongoing investigations.

“The equipment is state-of-the-art and will considerably enhance the unit’s capability in obtaining underwater imagery to an even higher standard than at present.

“It will also continue to help the team establish whether there is any criminality involved and if it is safe for our divers to investigate any discoveries.”

The £7,000 camera has been supplied by underwater vision specialist Bowtech Products.

Bowtech has been working with the Dive and Marine Unit for over 15 years. One of Bowtech’s first diver video inspection systems (DVIS) was specifically designed around the strict requirements of the unit.
