Body-Cam Appli­ca­ti­on


2023 (Test Phase)

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 the poli­ce equip­ment. The Muni­ci­pal Public Order Ser­vice also expects posi­ti­ve effects from the use of body­cams. The test pha­se will ser­ve to exami­ne the effec­ti­ve­ness and prac­ti­ca­bi­li­ty of the various models befo­re a final decis­i­on is made on their use.

This mea­su­re is part of a com­pre­hen­si­ve safe­ty pro­gram in Hamm and will help increase the safe­ty of muni­ci­pal law enforce­ment per­son­nel and bet­ter docu­ment conflicts.
