Watford Football Club is committed to the safety and wellbeing of their employees and all visitors who attend Vicarage Road Stadium.
Vicarage Road Stadium is home to Watford Football Club which has the current capacity to seat 22,200 football fans.
Due to incidents of poor behaviour from both home and away fans in and outside the stadium, the Operations Manager sought a solution that would assist in deterring anti-social behaviour whilst capturing vital evidence.
Watford Football Club deployed 6 WCCTV Body Worn Cameras (Record) which are handed out to key Matchday staff on the day of a match to capture evidence when attending reports of incidents before, during and after the matches at Vicarage Road.
The simple yet functional design of the WCCTV Body Worn Camera lends itself to ease of use, with a simple one-button record mechanism.
The device has an illuminated 2.8” front-facing screen - proven to reduce conflict and aggression - and a 120 second pre-event recording buffer to ensure incidents are not missed.
After deploying the WCCTV Body Worn Camera (Record) the club have been able to identify and deal with individuals within the ground for their troublesome behaviour.
Alternatively, the body worn cameras have offered protection to the wearer and the public by having greater transparency over how incidents occur and have been dealt with.
“WCCTV Body Worn Cameras have allowed my staff to deal with incidents knowing that they have the protection of real time imagery."
"The use of the camera has also had a positive effect on those individuals who come into contact with Matchday staff, realising their behaviour is being recorded has a calming effect which often diffuses any possible volatile situation."
"Working with WCCTV is always a pleasure.”
