HAMPSHIRE and Isle of Wight Police has been given nearly £400,000 of government cash to help pay for body worn video recorders for its officers and Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs).
Police and PCSOs on the Isle of Wight already have 180 of the devices which are being used as part of an evaluation project that ends in summer this year.
More than 450 of the devices are also worn by officers in Hampshire. They can be used to record video and audio evidence for training purposes.
Hampshire Constabulary chief constable, Andy Marsh, said: "This funding keeps Hampshire and the Isle of Wight at the cutting edge of body-worn video technology, not just in Britain, but anywhere in the world."
