NHS Lothian to equip hospital car park staff with body cameras for protection

Comments Off on NHS Lothian to equip hospital car park staff with body cameras for protection

Car park staff at St John’s Hospital in Livingston will be issued with personal CCTV body cameras in order to ensure their protection and guard them against any unwanted incidents, a brand new report in the national media has revealed.

Following a string of incidents that occurred over the past few months, health bosses decided that the staff should be granted a superior level of security, and they believe that the CCTV will act as a deterrent to drivers who become abusive, and be a “silent witness” against those who break the law.

George Curley, director of operations facilities at NHS Lothian, said: “We have a zero-tolerance approach to violence and aggression in the workplace and a duty to protect our workforce.

“Some of these drivers think that because no-one else is around to witness their unacceptable behaviour that they will get away with it. That will no longer be the case.”

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.
