Nord­west­bahn  GmbH, a pri­va­te rail­road com­pa­ny, has been ope­ra­ting local rail pas­sen­ger ser­vices in north-wes­tern and wes­tern Ger­ma­ny sin­ce 2000. With a net­work of 12 lines and over 1,000 kilo­me­ters of track, Nord­west­bahn trans­ports around 22 mil­li­on pas­sen­gers a year. As a sub­si­dia­ry of Trans­dev GmbH, Nord­west­bahn is incre­asing­ly focu­sing on safe­ty mea­su­res on trains, inclu­ding the use of body­cams on the Regio-S-Bahn Bremen/Lower Sax­o­ny network.

Body-Cam Appli­ca­ti­on



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.


The body­cams are used as a sup­ple­ment to the exis­ting video tech­no­lo­gy in the trains of the Regio-S-Bahn Bremen/Lower Saxony. 


The use of the body­cams will be docu­men­ted and ana­ly­zed in detail during the pilot pha­se. A reduc­tion in attacks and insults, fas­ter inves­ti­ga­ti­on of cri­mes and increased safe­ty for pas­sen­gers and employees are expec­ted. Data pro­tec­tion is a key con­cern, with encrypt­ed sto­rage and limi­t­ed access rights.
