Frontline officers and police community support officers at Cambridgeshire Constabulary are being issued with body-warn video (BWV) cameras this month.

Cambridgeshire police and crime commissioner Sir Graham Bright has allocated £500,000 to purchase the cameras “following growing evidence that the use of BWV helps protect the public, the police officers that wear them, and provides crucial evidence that helps prosecute offenders”.

“It is important to me that we make best use of the technology available to protect the public, protect officers and to ensure we collect the evidence that allows the best chance of securing prosecutions,” said Sir Graham.

Inspector Terri Griffin said the cameras “will help gain the additional evidence they often need to prosecute offenders.”
