Question

If your council deploys staff wearing Body Worn Video Cameras with audio recording facilities, do the staff wearing them have them turned on and Continuously Record at all times throughout their working day?

Answer

Charnwood Borough Council have a Body Worn Video Policy. It states the equipment is only set to record when there is an incident where the recording may be used as evidence:  e.g. witnessing a dog foul or the threat of physical assault.

The equipment does not record at all times.
