Funding for the Purchase of Body Worn Video


To approve the funding request for Cambridgeshire Constabulary for the purchase of Body Worn Video

Decision Summary

Following approval by the Force Executive Board and subsequent approval of the capital spend by the Finance Sub Group (FSG) on 17 December 2015, the Cambridgeshire Police and Crime Commissioner agreed to the funding as set out in the FSG paper, being £443k to fund the purchase of Body Worn Video (BWV) for personal issue with a pool available to uniform frontline staff. The main benefits of BWV include swifter resolution of incidents and disputes, better and more professional evidence gathering and early guilty pleas.

The funding has been allocated from a Revenue Contribution to Capital Outlay (RCCO).
