Cardiff hospital staff to fit staff with CCTV body cameras

Comments Off on Cardiff hospital staff to fit staff with CCTV body cameras

Staff at a hospital in Cardiff will be issued body-worn cameras in a bid to cut down on violent attacks and abuse they are frequently subjected to, a recent news report has been able to reveal.

The Cardiff and Vale University board says a quarter of all attacks and incidents in Wales happen to staff on its sites. For this reason, security staff at the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff have been given five personal CCTV devices while a further six cameras have been ordered for the health board’s other sites.

It is hoped the cameras will act as a deterrent – and also as a tool to gather evidence to help prosecute offenders.

CCTV Surveillance supplies a full range of CCTV cameras designed to meet any customer’s specific needs and requirements, including here a variety of Digital CCTV Body Cameras.

Digital CCTV Body Cameras are usually higher quality than bullet cameras and require a lens to be attached to them. This may be a long lens where the subject is at a distance or a wide angle lens if the subject is closer, e.g. in a corridor or room.

Furthermore, vari-focal lenses can also be employed which allow you to manually adjust the zoom level of your body camera. This awards users the ability to shape a CCTV security system exactly to their requirements.
