London’s Metropolitan Police officers are to trial the use of body-worn video cameras on their uniforms as part of a plan to boost both transparency and accelerate convictions and are designed to capture crime scene evidence.

The pilot scheme will see 500 body-worn video cameras distributed to police officers across 10 London boroughs. Firearm officers will also use them for training.

Camden is the first to start using the cameras, with further trials in Barnet, Bexley, Bromley, Brent, Croydon, Ealing, Havering, Hillingdon and Lewisham.

Video footage will be stored on file for a month unless it is needed as evidence in a case.

Trials in the use of law enforcement body-worn video cameras have shown that people are more likely to plead guilty, knowing that officers have captured the evidence on video, resulting in less costly legal trials and a more efficient criminal justice system.

If successful, it will be rolled out across Britain’s biggest police force.

RTS is a CPS approved supplier of courtroom audiovisual technology, including both temporary and permanent installation of video conferencing, networking and hardware for trials, inquests and hearings in London and around the UK.

RTS have been awarded a sole supplier contract by the Crown Prosecution Service to provide HD video equipment to the CPS training department based in York, UK.

Against stiff opposition from other audiovisual suppliers, RTS were the successful organisation chosen to deliver high definition cameras and DVD recorders to training sessions across the United Kingdom over the next 12 months.

The Leveson inquiry into the ‘culture, practices and ethics of the press’ heard from 650 witnesses who testified in person or in writing, generating 6,000 pages of evidence in more than eight months of hearings.

With their history of successfully installing and operating AV equipment for numerous high profile inquiries, RTS were approached to design, install and operate an audiovisual system for the Leveson Inquiry.

The inquiry was set up in court 73 of the Royal Courts of Justice in London, with a press and public annexe in a temporary structure located in an outside courtyard.

RTS were asked to design:

  • An audiovisual system with full video conferencing capability for the main hearing room
  • Endpoint facilities for both UK and overseas witness video conferencing links
  • Audio and video feed to the press and public overspill annexe
  • High definition video link for national and international broadcast
  • Live web-stream with on-demand content for the inquiry website
  • Witness identity protection (special measures)

RTS engineers installed and operated networked HD PTZ cameras and microphones, and provided a mixed audio and High Definition SDI video feed to the world’s media for broadcast.

The RTS CDN (Content Delivery Network), served over 2 million video requests for live streams and pre-recorded videos of previous hearings totalling almost 216 TB of data transferred for the duration of the inquiry.
