Offenders to be caught in the act

Cheshire PCC Body Worn cameras redOver the next couple of months, a body worn camera pilot is being run across a town in Cheshire to see how effective they can be when used by officers tackling crime.

“I think piloting worn body cameras in Cheshire is an excellent idea,” said Police & Crime Commissioner John Dwyer. “I think these cameras will prove themselves invaluable when it comes to prosecuting offenders who try every trick in the book to get off. It’s hard to argue against an image or video footage of you being caught in the act.”

The pilot will be run in Warrington and will be overtly used, and where possible people will be told that the cameras are recording.

John added: “Using this kind of technology will ultimately help the Constabulary make Cheshire a safer place to live.”
