A new ‘in-car video system for law enforcement was unveiled at this month’s IACP (The International Association of Chiefs of Police) annual conference in San Diego, US.

It features six camera inputs, all managed simultaneously by a dashboard management system, giving officers an all-encompassing view of their environment, with cameras mounted on the dash, roof, rear and back seat of the car, as well as on the officer’s uniform by way of body-worn video (BWV) cameras.

All the cameras can be controlled, activated and managed via the dash-mounted touchscreen, and footage reviewed, edited and shared remotely.

VB-Patrol has been designed by BWV specialist Edesix in conjunction with US technology partner Federal Signal.

Edesix managing director, Riche McBride said: “Having successfully deployed our series of VideoBadge body-worn cameras and accompanying VideoManager management system, extending to in-car cameras was the logical next step.”

Benefits highlighted by officers at IACP included the use of IP (internet protocol) cameras, which allow the system be more compact, faster and cheaper than similar systems, and the multi-perspective video capture and web-based in-car control system.

The IACP conference and expo is one of the largest and most important law enforcement event of the year, with more than 14,000 public safety professionals attending to “learn about new techniques, advance their product knowledge and equip their department for ongoing success”.
