Fol­lo­wing an exten­si­ve test pha­se, the Lever­ku­sen muni­ci­pal poli­ce ser­vice has deci­ded to equip its employees with body-worn came­ras, the Net­Co body cams, with imme­dia­te effect. Around 30 field staff will be equip­ped with the­se devices to increase secu­ri­ty during their assign­ments. This mea­su­re is being intro­du­ced as part of a com­pre­hen­si­ve secu­ri­ty con­cept aimed at pre­ven­ting ver­bal and phy­si­cal attacks.

Main Objec­ti­ve:

Pre­ven­ti­on of ver­bal and phy­si­cal attacks, increased safe­ty for the emer­gen­cy services 

Area of application: 

Streets and public spaces in the city 


“By purcha­sing the body­cams, we hope to take addi­tio­nal mea­su­res to pre­vent ver­bal and phy­si­cal attacks against our employees. Expe­ri­ence has shown that the intro­duc­tion of the body­cams will have a de-escala­ting effect and thus increase the safe­ty of our emer­gen­cy ser­vices. At the same time, addi­tio­nal evi­dence can be secu­red in mis­de­me­an­or or cri­mi­nal pro­cee­dings.” Stef­fen Franz­kow­ski, Head of the Depart­ment of Public Order and Road Traffic

The body­cams ser­ve as an addi­tio­nal secu­ri­ty mea­su­re to redu­ce aggres­si­ve beha­vi­or and increase the safe­ty of employees. Data pro­tec­tion requi­re­ments are strict­ly adhe­red to and employees are trai­ned accor­din­gly befo­re using the body­cams. The recor­dings are made in accordance with the appli­ca­ble data pro­tec­tion gui­de­lines and are used exclu­si­ve­ly for the safe­ty and pro­tec­tion of employees and to pre­ser­ve evi­dence if necessary.
