Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service To Trial Body Worn Video Cameras


Fire Protection Officers from Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service are in the process of starting a trial on the use of body worn video cameras. It is hoped that the video footage obtained will capture evidence of any serious noncompliance at premises that fall under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. This evidence will help support the prohibition of unsafe premises and clearly highlight breaches of serious noncompliance that may be considered for prosecution at court.

It is also hoped that the trial will provide opportunities to enhance workforce development and safety within the Service and evidence to support fire prevention messages. Use of the body worn video cameras will be overt and in line with national guidance.

The use of all footage obtained will be compliant with general data protection regulations and all equipment that is being trialled is designed to work within data protection legislation.

Example of camera that will be worn on officer’s shirts.
