4 Ways Intelligent Video Analytics Enhance Body-Worn Cameras

Body-worn cameras have been a growing trend in the law enforcement community for the last several years. Yet, as agencies worldwide establish body-worn camera programs, they are challenged with how to access, manage, protect, search, and easily share that video. The hundreds to even millions of hours of video that agencies —depending on size— are capturing weekly is simply overwhelming them and complicates compliance with Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and Criminal Justice Information Standards (CJIS) requirements. Agencies can deploy Video Analytics solutions to help them face these challenges in four key ways.
