Edinburgh-based Edesix Ltd. has been selected as the Body Worn Camera provider of choice for Her Majesty’s Prison Service throughout the UK.

Edesix continues to be the first choice for secure BWC solutions in high security environments: Following a national contract win and roll-out in England and Wales prison service, Edesix also has secured orders for Prison applications in Scotland and, most recently, Northern Ireland.

Commenting on the use of Body Worn Camera technology, Richie McBride, Managing Director at Edesix said: “The benefits of BWCs within prisons have been widely recognised throughout previous trials; improving staff morale and encouraging a safer working and living environment for those within the prisons. Having successfully rolled out our solution to the Police Service of Northern Ireland, our recent contract with the Northern Ireland Prison Service comes as an addition to encouraging a safer working environment within the justice system.”

Justice Minister, Claire Sugden recently commented of the roll-out: “I believe this is a significant and important step in ensuring that prison officers have the right tools to perform their difficult and challenging role and will contribute to a safer prison environment for both staff and prisoners.”

Edesix BWCs are small, lightweight devices, designed to be worn on the prison officer’s uniform. Completely secure and fully encrypted, these cameras act as a deterrent to violent behaviour, and offer supportive evidential footage for criminal convictions and prosecutions.
