A Swedish security company equipped their guards with Philips VideoTracer Body-worn Recorders. Good video and sound quality increases security for everyone involved. Furthermore, its presence has a de-escalating effect.
Orca Security AB is an authorized security company with the whole of Sweden as a working area. Their clients work in restaurants and nightclubs and in various events, such as concerts and festivals. They also work closely with Swedish football and several other sporting events.
Increase of security
Phillips VideoTracer Body-worn Recorder helps them to secure the work of their guards, not only as security for themselves, but also for the individual guest or visitor. In this way, they can easily document what has happened and what has been said in various interventions and it is also an important tool when it comes to securing evidence on the issue of possible criminal acts.
With the camera placed clearly visible on the duty guard, there is rarely any discussion of what has been said or done. This creates security for everyone involved. The visual presence of the camera also seems to have a calming effect. It is evident in their daily work that most people are aware that the camera’s documentation may be a problem for them if they do something they shall not do, so they often choose to listen instead of going into discussions.
Good quality and easy to use working tool
Before equipping the guards with Philips VideoTracers in spring 2020, Orca Security often had to rely on the existing camera surveillance systems that were installed by their clients, which rarely worked fully.
