The Romanian Border Police has invested in more than 3,000 Motorola Solutions VB400 body-worn cameras. These will be deployed alongside back-end evidence management software, VideoManager, across the force.
The Romanian Border Police are responsible for approximately 3,150 km of borders, dealing with a variety of challenges, from securing and controlling the state borders to ensuring the interests of the Romanian state.
“It is a priority for our institution that during specific control missions at the country borders, both the Romanian border police officer who is enforcing the law and any citizen who is complying and crossing the border, feel protected and respected,” stated the General Inspector of the Romanian Border Police, chief police quaestor Liviu Bute. “Using the new body-worn camera solution will help to prove that the border police officer is managing the operational situation with impeccable conduct, and at the same time, the citizens and individuals crossing can feel protected.”
“According to our customers, body-worn camera technology has proven to be an invaluable tool for frontline officers to increase transparency,” added Michael Kaae, regional vice president of Europe at Motorola Solutions. “It helps to ensure the accountability of all parties by capturing objective evidence and assisting in the prosecution of cases.”
The Motorola Solutions VB400 body-worn camera offers up to 12 hours of battery life and a full 1080p HD wide-angle lens. It features Wi-Fi streaming and Bluetooth Sensor Monitoring to live stream from the camera to VideoManager.
Motorola Solutions has been a trusted partner for public safety organisations in Romania for over 25 years, providing TETRA digital radio solutions, including networks, radios and services. Earlier this year, the General Inspectorate for the Romanian Police, the national police force and main civil law enforcement agency in Romania, signed a contract for an integrated body-worn camera solution – consisting of 12,000 VB400 body-worn cameras and back-end VideoManager software.
