500 London police officers start wearing cameras on their uniforms today

It is the largest pilot of its kind ever to be carried out. 500 British police officers will take to the streets of London today with a small video camera capable of recording 12 hours attached to their uniform.

The cameras do not record continuously. Officers are instructed to turn them on when interacting in a difficult situation. The devices always keep a copy of the last 30 seconds of video so that no details are lost by activating it late. The cameras are Axon Body from the Taser company, and are prepared to resist water and shocks. Their viewing angle is 130 degrees, and they are even prepared to work in very low light conditions.
