With the start of the Cran­ger Kir­mes, a regio­nal fes­ti­val, the muni­ci­pal public order ser­vice of the city of Her­ne is intro­du­cing a one-year pilot pha­se with seven body­cams. The main aim is to impro­ve safe­ty and pro­tect the emer­gen­cy ser­vices and citi­zens through de-escala­ti­on. The body cams are inten­ded to objec­tively record events in dan­ge­rous situa­tions in image and sound and thus con­tri­bu­te to the cla­ri­fi­ca­ti­on of assaults.

Main Objec­ti­ve:

The main aim is to impro­ve the safe­ty of the muni­ci­pal public order ser­vice and at the same time pro­tect citi­zens through de-escala­ti­on. The body­cams are to be used in dan­ge­rous situa­tions to objec­tively record events in image and sound. 


Muni­ci­pal secu­ri­ty ser­vice for the pro­tec­tion of emer­gen­cy ser­vices and for the objec­ti­ve docu­men­ta­ti­on of emer­gen­cy situations. 


Full feed­back can only be given after the pilot pha­se.  The muni­ci­pal order ser­vices expect an increased sen­se of secu­ri­ty, which is not only due to the objec­ti­ve docu­men­ta­ti­on of events, but also to the pre­ven­ta­ti­ve deter­rence of poten­ti­al per­pe­tra­tors through the visi­ble tech­no­lo­gy. The auto­ma­tic dele­ti­on of irrele­vant recor­dings com­pli­es with data pro­tec­tion gui­de­lines and con­tri­bu­tes to the trans­pa­rent hand­ling of the infor­ma­ti­on collected.
