Featured in Channel Buzz.ca: StorageCraft targets law enforcement market
The demand for body-worn cameras in U.S. law enforcement has risen dramatically. So has the cost of storing the video surveillance footage that they generate. Accordingly. StorageCraft has designed StorageCraft for Law Enforcement, a solution specifically designed for law enforcement surveillance.
“There is great pressure to increase the number of bodycams in almost every county,” said Shridar Subramanian, vice president marketing and product management at StorageCraft. A recent study by the Major Cities Chiefs Association and Major County Sheriffs’ Association in the U.S. shows that 95 per cent of large police departments there are either using body cameras now or are committed to using them. Many smaller jurisdictions in the U.S. also feel compelled to adopt the technology. To date, they have been much less common in Canada, with most projects still in the pilot stage.
