Body Cameras Introduced: ‘We’re not Here to be Abused’Author/Presenter: Block, George
Fulton Hogan traffic management department had bought two body cameras for the staff to wear to deter harassment and abuse from the minority of drivers and pedestrians frustrated with roadworks. They are fitted to the high-visibility vests worn by the staff, recording a live view of everything they see, while also displaying the footage on a forward-facing screen to let people know they are being filmed. But the cameras did not capture the incident where a man drove at a Fulton Hogan worker holding a stop sign at an intersection before subjecting him to a vulgar insult. The worker was not wearing the camera at the time of the incident.
