I am writing to make an open government request for all the information to which I am entitled under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
Please send me:
The details of your use of body cameras in your organisation -
Does anyone (staff or contractors) in your organisation use/wear body cameras or body worn video recording devices while performing their duties?
If yes, please detail:
Who provides the body cameras and footage/evidence management used by your organisation?
How many staff members use body cameras and what capacities/teams do they work in? Are they staff or contractors (for e.g. outsourced security personnel) How many body cameras in all are currently owned and/or used by your organisation?
Were the cameras bought as a one off purchase and if so, how much did they cost your organisation?
If they are part of an ongoing contract - what is the current contract term (how long is it and when does it expire) and what is the value of said contract?
Where is the data recorded stored - on premises locally or on cloud?
Who is the point of contact for your body camera programme?
Please accept my apologies for the delay in responding.
Currently our contractor for littering enforcement (Kingdom Services) are the only staff we have that use body cameras. These cameras are supplied and managed by Kingdom therefore we do not the information requested.
Hastings Borough Council Wardens will be using body cams in the near future but they do not at the moment.
