Motorola Solutions provides police officers in German’s Saxony-Anhalt with advanced body-worn cameras

Motorola Solutions announced that the company signed a contract with the Ministry of the Interior of the German federal state of Saxony-Anhalt to deploy VB400 body-worn cameras including VideoManager evidence management software to the state’s police officers. 

What is the market offering of the body-worn cameras?

The roll out of the body-worn cameras to the City of Stendal Police Inspectorate and the police academy in Aschersleben marks the beginning of a wider deployment to nearly all operational frontline teams in Saxony-Anhalt. The cameras will help officers to de-escalate potentially dangerous situations and increase safety and transparency on the front line.

Motorola Solutions’ VB400 body-worn cameras will be rolled out alongside VideoManager evidence management software, enabling officers to upload and securely store and manage video footage, organised with time, date and location as part of the force’s daily workflows.

The cameras offer a pre-recording capability to help ensure incidents are captured and are equipped with an extended battery life that lasts up to 12 hours of recording. The body-worn cameras can be integrated with a broad range of sensors, such as Holster Aware which automatically activates recording and live-streams footage if an officer draws a weapon.
