Security staff at Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS FT are now equipped with video cameras. It is hoped that the new body worn cameras will help to reduce acts of violence and aggression on the sites managed by the ICFT.
The plan is that security staff will turn on the cameras in order to record the following acts committed on hospital premises:
Offenders will be notified when equipment is to be switched on and recording commenced. Where appropriate, recordings will be passed to the Police for further investigation and prosecution.
Anyone wanting more information about the scheme can contact out security team on 0161 922 6688.
