Law enforcement agencies looking to provide first-person video while out in the field have a brand new option that allows police officers to comfortably document necessary situations out in the field.
VIEVU, the industry leader in body worn video (BWV) for law enforcement, security, and emergency responders, has announced “Straight Shooter 25,” designed for agencies needing to capture video evidence from the “officer’s Pperspective.”
Priced at $25 per month, Straight Shooter 25 includes the recently released rugged LE3 HD camera, VERIPATROL secure file management software that includes in-car mobile viewing and Free Cloud storage access. There are zero upfront or additional costs.
VIEVU cameras are used in more than 3,100 law enforcement agencies including Oakland PD, Houston PD, Dallas PD Atlanta PD and Phoenix PD. Agencies continue to deploy BWV cameras as studies of police-worn BWV continue to show its benefits. A study of the Rialto PD in CA showed an 88 percent decline in complaints filed against officers, and a 60 percent decline in use-of-force.
The LE3 is a highly secure HD video camera designed for law enforcement. The LE3 was built not only to capture the best forensic video evidence possible, but also to make operation simple with its large slide on/off switch for easy activation in stressful situations.
VIEVU’s accompanying VERIPATROL software exceeds current evidence standards and prevents tampering, editing or deleting video using a FIPS 140-2 compliant file authenticity process. It also prevents unauthorized access if the camera is lost or stolen.
“VIEVU cameras and software deliver an immediate benefit to agencies using our solution,” VIEVU President Steve Lovell said. “We wanted to create the zero-cost startup and easy monthly plan that our customers can budget. We didn’t want law enforcement customers paying scheming and confusing subscriptions with complicating user fees that other companies are providing. The ‘Straight Shooter 25’ is simple and transparent, $25 per month that’s it.”
