Video footage provides investigators, solicitors and the police with an accurate account of an event. London Police have been piloting body worn video recording equipment in a bid to fight crime, support victims and help the Met to be more accountable. As more police chiefs realise the operational benefits body worn video can offer, advocates of the technology believe it could be the key to delivering modern policing. Body worn video enhances the officer’s professionalism and it is the way forward for empowering officers and offering reassurance in certain incidents. The limits of technology have been pushed even further over the years, with devices proving how the concept can gather and produce solid and reliable evidence and act as a reassurance to officers.
Essential Forensics can work with all forms of video footage enhancing it to produce high quality evidence in an attempt to accelerate convictions. If a criminal is aware that their crime may have been caught on camera they will be more likely to plead guilty, this speeds up the justice system by convicting and earlier sentencing resulting in more cost effective service. Video analysis can also be of benefit to any innocent parties when gathering evidence for a defence statement in preparation for a legal battle.
