Edesix supplies North East paramedics with body worn cameras as attacks rise

The North East Ambulance Service (NEAS) has become the first in the country to trial body cams to counter attacks on paramedics. The body worn cameras will be supplied by UK-based market leaders Edesix (www.edesix.com).

In the last year reports of physical assaults on paramedics in the region have increased by 23 per cent compared to last year. Forty emergency NEAS staff will have access to the body cams when on calls and if an incident unfolds they can record both vision and sound, which can later be used as evidence if a prosecution is pursued.
