Ian Jones, former Chief Inspector and Head of North Wales & Cheshire Alliance Policing has spoken about why they chose Reveal body cameras for their Firearms units.
"I had to look for a device that could be used on the ballistic vest for normal operations, but also for firearms operations where it could be quickly taken from the body and mounted to a helmet mount.
"DEMS was part of my scoping, because I wanted a device that the officers could quickly and easily book out, quickly and easily book in, and also have the ability to upload the footage whilst simultaneously being able to share that footage with the joint forces.
"They have been used in multiple firearms operations; we have used them in an extended siege, which lasted for some 55 hours. The officers do feel supported by the cameras, and from interactions with colleagues from around the country, all bar none see it as a positive step."
