Loomis UK Limited issues crew with Body Worn Video (BWV) as part of their operational equipment.
The use of BWV has a number of benefits for employees, customers, members of the public and Loomis UK Limited, including the potential to reduce the number of confrontational situations and attacks, and to provide evidence of any such incidents should they occur.
A recording from the scene of an incident may capture evidence that could provide video and sound that would help support a criminal investigation into the attack, and may provide evidence that will enable the Police to identify the attackers.
Additionally the use of BWV may help deter an attack due to the increased possibility of arrest, which could have the effect of reducing the overall level of CViT attacks, thus protecting our crews, supporting crime prevention and helping to improve public safety.
Loomis UK Employees only record their working activities, as detailed in the individual applicable procedures, and are only used "overtly" and not in a "covert" manner.
Agreed members of the Loomis Management Team will utilise the recordings to review and improve how incidents are dealt with and will be used to investigate any complaints made against the crew.
Loomis UK store all data for 90 days, the data is encrypted and is only accessible by authorised staff. After 90 days, unless already being used to support an investigation, the data will be deleted.
