Keeping Hutto's schools safe with the VB400 body camera
Tasked with overseeing 10,000 students across 13 campuses, Hutto Independent School District (ISD) relies on the VB400 body camera every day to capture evidence and foster trust in the school community.
The VB400 body camera can stop a situation in its tracks, before it escalates - when students realize an officer is wearing a body camera, their behavior often improves immediately.See how
Due to the officers' strong relationships with their students, it's rare for a situation to escalate to the judicial system. However, in those cases, Hutto ISD officers can feel secure knowing that their VB400 body cameras have captured the interaction from start to finish.See how
Hutto ISD officers take their duty of care seriously. By capturing every interaction they have with students, officers can prove to parents and the broader community that they have followed protocols and best practices.See how
Hutto ISD configured the VB400's buttons to suit the needs of different officers, making it even easier to start recording in stressful situations.
Flexible purchase options
While the VB400 can be bought as-a-service, the ISD decided to purchase their body cameras outright, along with perpetual on-premises software, to better fit their budgetary requirements.
Powerful backend software
The officers configured the granular retention policy to automatically delete old, non-evidential footage; this keeps storage costs low and ensures the ISD obeys all local regulations.
The camera is our best friend and our biggest ally. This camera protects me, [and] it can be peace of mind for a parent that I've talked to their child alone in a room but there's an audio and video recording of it.
Does it help? Absolutely. We use [the VB400 body camera] all the time, especially in the high school.
