The benefits of bodycams for security guards

Large areas are often guarded by smaller teams, there is frequently a potential for challenging contacts with the public, precious items and property must be secured, and in an emergency there is always a need for prompt and effective communication and support. All of these questions are answered, among others, by bodycam systems.

Bodycams for security guards increase their safety and improve interactions

In numerous sectors, bodycams have already been shown to improve personnel safety and sentiments of safety. They are quickly replacing other items as essential components of a security official's PPE (PPE). Since it has been demonstrated that using bodycams greatly reduces the likelihood of verbal or physical altercations with the public, municipal law enforcement agencies have begun adopting them widely. The bodycams have proven to be quite useful, especially for frontline personnel with few official tools.

ZEPCAM T2+ bodycams are being used by hospital security guards in the Netherlands, and they are quite pleased with the improved worker safety. Body cameras:

  • Have a de-escalating impact; when people are informed that the bodycam will be activated, their reactions and attitudes change for the better. Make bodycam-wearing workers feel safer.

  • Have been utilized several times to present unambiguous evidence in cases involving police participation.

  • Have not caused any unfavorable responses from individuals or patients during the pilot, and there has never been an escalation as a result of the deployment of the bodycam.

  • Positive experiences with supermarket security, door guards, and security guards working with journalists demonstrate how much the installation of bodycam systems improves employee safety. New chances open up when bodycams have the most recent livestreaming capability.

Situational awareness is significantly improved in any security activity

Livestreaming bodycams may be quite beneficial given that the majority of security officers operate alone or in small teams and typically have a big area to watch over. Since staff members in a control center can immediately view what is occurring "on the ground," livestreamed footage can significantly increase communication efficiency. As a result, staff actions and needs for complete assistance in all operations become more apparent.

Livestreaming bodycams provide several advantages for security operations, including:

  • With the push of a button, security personnel may receive assistance and share live video immediately.

  • Colleagues in the control room can monitor what's happening and what is required to assist field authorities right away: Livestreamed video significantly improves situational awareness, which has the effect of becoming a force multiplier.

  • Livestreamed video may be safely and promptly shared with all pertinent parties, such as the police, if appropriate and with a service that provides customizable connectors.

  • allows for smaller, more adaptable, and continually supported security personnel to effectively monitor huge terrains.

Renowned Amsterdam security company DeltaSafe Groep already uses the ZEPCAM T3 Live in their security operations, and are very positive about its uses.

“The T3 Live is an awesome device that provides instant and efficient communication, allows for equally quick responses from the control room and security officials, and has resulted in frontline professionals feeling safer during their work in the field. I recommend this technology for all organisations dealing with the issue of how to improve the safety of their frontline staff.” – Peter Wolfs | Director and owner of DeltaSafe Groep

Security guard bodycam systems provide ongoing, relevant data for training and evaluation

Bodycam footage is crucial for creating a database that is both informational and instructive. Having a database of all the situations that occurred during operations or as a result of interactions with the public provides the team with actionable data. This data can be used to reflect on employee actions, evaluate and improve future operations, and show the good work done by frontline staff.

Videos and images have already shown to be the most effective training tool, as employees can directly experience their own actions in the field, as well as the results of these actions. Bodycam footage, when archived, can create the entire basis for the training of new staff, as there will be documented evidence of every situation they might encounter during their work. This quickly results in time and money saved.

The director of public safety at Piedmont hospitals agrees and finds that:

“The body-worn camera became an obvious, exceptional tool, not only from a de-escalation standpoint, but also from a liability protection standpoint and from a professional development standpoint, it gives us valuable information on how to debrief and improve.” Mike Hodges | Piedmont Director of Public Safety

The use of bodycams shields users from legal and insurance claims.

While the cost effectiveness of bodycam systems in the public arena has already been proven, private security companies and employees can also financially benefit from implementing a bodycam solution. The known limits of traditional CCTV systems often result in fragmented, or absent video evidence of crimes or violence committed against staff. This results in risks regarding liability and insurance when an incident occurs. When bodycams are a part of the team, there is always an objective and reliable witness present that will record the entire operation or interaction, including audio. This is crucial in order to protect your organisation from false claims, and to protect the actions of your security guards at all times.

Courts prefer bodycam footage as this also records verbal interactions, which are often crucial in deciding what was said and done, and whether the actions of staff were justified. Furthermore, with the right bodycam provider the entire chain of evidence (managing, accessing, sharing) will occur securely through a encrypted process and with role-based access in order to adhere to any and all data and privacy regulations.

Escalating interactions and violence from the public

  • Realising direct and continuous support

  • Protecting staff, property and goods

  • Providing the actionable data needed for training, evaluation and improvement
