No date has been set so far for body cameras being used by Southwark police officers, after the Met announced a city-wide roll out.

The scheme revealed last week will see the start of Body Worn Video (BWV) cameras being issued to more than 22,000 officers in a bid to bring “speedier justice for victims”.

All footage recorded on BWV is subject to legal safeguards and guidance, with footage being automatically uploaded once the device is docked and flagged for use as evidence at court.

Video not retained as evidence or for a policing purpose is automatically deleted within 31 days.
