Sussex Police have been using the RS2 for three months and are so pleased with the results that the cameras will be used by all officers involved in Operation Cranberry, a domestic abuse initiative that will run over the Christmas holidays.
Chief Inspector Julia Pope said: "Officers are realising the importance of having these cameras out with them when they are patrolling the streets of Sussex. And, it goes without saying, they are an essential piece of evidence gathering equipment when officers are called to domestic abuse incidents."
Video and audio recordings provide essential evidence for conviction. Pope describes a domestic abuse case where the victim did not want to press charges on her partner. But when the Crown Prosecution Service saw the visual evidence of the scene, they decided to press charges.
Sussex Police also commented that the RS2 is smaller and comfortable compared to head cameras that have previously been used.
