Body worn cameras are deployed with a number of police forces around Australia.

WESTERN Australia Police Force has gone to tender seeking the provision of body worn CCTV cameras, as well as a Digital Evidence Management System.

According to WA Police, significant technology and business changes are planned through the Digital Policing strategy, which will fundamentally alter the way the WA Police Force captures, stores, manages and uses digital evidence.

The Body Worn Camera (BWC) solution is an integral component of the Digital Policing strategy and will incorporate the allocation of cameras and a Digital Evidence Management System (DEMS).

The BWC solution (hardware and software) will be procured as a fully hosted managed service, which will need to account for geographical remoteness and limited data load considerations. Cameras will be supplied under a service agreement rather than purchased outright, enabling the WA Police Force to maintain updated devices.

The successful Respondent will be an experienced and innovative strategic partner, able to provide a BWC solution that is scalable and adaptable, meeting both metropolitan requirements as well as delivering solution capability for remote policing jurisdictions. This will entail the:

* Provision of a BWC solution, which is fit for purpose to the WA policing environment
* Provision of support during identified implementation phases of the BWC solution deployment
* Provision of a managed service for the BWC solution within agreed timeframes.

The tender closes on November 20, 2018.
