Buncombe County Sheriff’s Office, Asheville, North Carolina, to Equip Its Deputies with VIEVU Body-Worn Cameras from Motorola Solutions
SCHAUMBURG, Ill. – Oct. 31, 2014 – The Buncombe County Sheriff’s Office in Asheville, North Carolina, will be equipping all of its patrol and Sheriff’s Community Enforcement Team deputies with VIEVU® LE3 body-worn cameras from Motorola Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MSI). This small, lightweight, self-contained video recorder can help reduce the incidence of complaint-generating events and improve relations between the police force and the public. The Sherriff’s Office plans to begin using VIEVU cameras in January 2015 to capture video and audio evidence directly at the point of engagement.
- The VIEVU LE3 wearable video camera is extremely rugged, waterproof and easy to use.
- This efficient camera eliminates the need for separate recorders, batteries or cables and can easily be worn on an officer’s uniform.
- It contains just one moving part, the on/off switch that was designed to be easily activated in stressful situations.
- High-definition video evidence is managed by the VERIPATROL™ software and utilizes VidLock™ security. The camera has no removable media and several layers of security prevent unauthorized access or manipulation of video files.
Sheriff Van Duncan, Buncombe County, North Carolina
“The Buncombe County Sheriff’s Office is very connected to the community we serve and we strive to maintain a relationship of advocacy with our citizens. The adoption and use of the VIEVU body-worn camera – because of the transparency and accountability it brings to our agency and the public – will further build that relationship. Using drug seizure forfeiture money to purchase our body cameras will enhance officer and public safety without adding any taxpayer cost.”
Jim Mears, corporate vice president, North America Government, Motorola Solutions
“The VIEVU LE3 body-worn video camera that will be used by Buncombe County, North Carolina, is made for police officers to capture video at the point of engagement. The large activation slide is easy to engage during incidents. Built by police officers for police officers, it is the perfect companion for professionals who need to record their interactions on video.”
