Enforcement industry supports body worn video

Responding to the Justice Ministers’ decision to mandate the use of body-worn video for civil enforcement agents, Russell Hamblin-Boone, CEO of the Civil Enforcement Association that represents firms employing more than 1800 active agents said: We have been working towards an industry agreement on the compulsory use of body-worn video. Following talks with Ministers we are encouraged by the decision that all enforcement agents must record their activities, which should include in-house council teams. This decision offers reassurance to the public that standards are consistently high and gives protection to our agents who do a difficult job on behalf of local authorities.”
