Boris Johnson hails new police camera technology

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson joined a town centre policing team today (Thursday 19th December) to see first-hand how body cameras can help officers on the beat fight crime.

On a visit to Sutton police alongside the Home Office Minister Damian Green MP, the Mayor got a demonstration of the cameras and went out on patrol with officers wearing the devices.  Through a partnership agreement, the Mayor’s Office for Policing And Crime (MOPAC) has funded 20 small cameras in Sutton that have been used to help tackle late night anti-social behaviour and accurately record responses to domestic violence incidents.
