High Tech Crackdown on Domestic Abuse
8:02am 11th May 2014
Digital evidence gathering is being introduced by Cornwall police to help crack down on domestic abuse.
Cameras will be used to photograph any evidence such as injuries and damage.
The images can then be used to help towards prosecution.
It is the biggest roll out they have had with 50 being dispatched to response vehicles across the Duchy.
It's after Pirate FM told you a report warned that the force isn't doing enough to help victims.
Inspector Dave Meredith said: "It's vital so that when officers go along and meet a victim of crime, they are as best equipped as possible. They have got CS spray etc and handcuffs, but also they've got the best equipment to secure and preserve evidence.
"Just about every patrol vehicle will have a camera in it, so when officers have to attend these tragic incidents at least they've got the means to record images of injuries and damage to property."
