Surrey Police have introduced Reveal body worn video to their Guildford and Waverley Area Policing Teams, following in the footsteps of Thames Valley and West Sussex Police.

Plans to equip officers with bodycams were confirmed at the end of 2016 and now, both Guildford and Waverley police constabularies have begun rolling out personally issued Reveal body cameras and started to use them in their policing.

Chief Superintendent Jon Savell, Divisional Commander for West Surrey, said, “The introduction of body worn video across Guildford and Waverley is a real step forward for both the public and our officers. I have no doubt that the public will see no difference as to how our officers interact with them, and I am sure that they will see the benefit in the collection of better evidence in order to pursue offenders to prevent and detect crime.”

The body camera records footage which can be downloaded, stored using DEMS (Reveal’s Digital Evidence Management Software) and later accessed for evidential purposes. Grampian Police reported a colossal 90% increase in early guilty pleas after the implementation of body worn video, owed to the high audio/visual recordings of Reveal’s body cameras.
