One thing that is common day practice for law enforcement, security personnel and first responders is that they all wear body cameras (body cams.) With today’s global climate, having documented proof, especially via video footage, is something that protects all parties involved. For the job descriptions mentioned above, wearing a body cam is common practice. But what is a bit of a surprise is the number of civilians that are opting to own and wear body cams.
Are They Being A Bit Paranoid?
With the global pandemic, recent elections and over-all uncertainly in many people’s eyes, being wrongly accused is something that no one can take for granted. There is not a day that goes by that someone’s life hasn’t changed because of video footage caught by a camera. This can be a positive or negative, depending on which side of the camera that you are on. But regardless of the outcome, the video footage doesn’t lie.
So do I think that average civilians, whom want to add a bit of insurance while they are:
-At a public event
-In their vehicle
-On their property
-Walking to their vehicle late at night
-At work (clerks, cashiers, late night businesses, etc.)
-Walking home from school/ class
are paranoid? Absolutely Not!
I was recently added a new body cam to my own gear list. It is the P1 Body Cam by Rexing. This little camera is light weight, compact and built to take a punch. I put it through my review process and it certainly performed very well. I have more expensive body cams that don’t come close to the performance of the P1.
