Body-Cam Appli­ca­ti­on


2023 (Test Pha­se), 2024 (Full Application)

Main Objec­ti­ve:

The main objec­ti­ve of the intro­duc­tion of body­cams is to increase the safe­ty of the employees of the Muni­ci­pal Public Order Ser­vice and at the same time to enable the pre­ser­va­ti­on of evi­dence during ope­ra­ti­ons. This is inten­ded to con­tri­bu­te to the de-escala­ti­on of conflicts.

Appli­ca­ti­on Area:

The body­cams are main­ly used in the ope­ra­ti­on of the Muni­ci­pal Public Order Ser­vice to ensu­re secu­ri­ty, safe­ty and coll­ect evi­dence of any incidents. 


The poli­ce in Hamm have alre­a­dy had posi­ti­ve expe­ri­en­ces with body­cams, which have hel­ped to defu­se situa­tions and docu­ment acts of vio­lence. The body­cams have beco­me an inte­gral
part of poli­ce equip­ment. The use of body­cams has also had posi­ti­ve effects in a pilot pha­se in the muni­ci­pal public order ser­vice. The test pha­se hel­ped to test the effec­ti­ve­ness and prac­ti­ca­bi­li­ty of the various models befo­re a final decis­i­on was made on their use.

Fol­lo­wing posi­ti­ve feed­back, 30 body cams are now being deploy­ed. Pre-recor­ding and data pro­tec­tion secu­ri­ty play a par­ti­cu­lar­ly important role here.
