Viridian® Showcases OIS Recording Device at National Sheriffs’ Association Expo

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – June 11, 2019 – Viridian Weapon Technologies is showcasing the FACT Duty Weapon-Mounted Camera (WMC) at the annual National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA) Conference and Exposition in Louisville, Kentucky from June 15-18, 2019. The conference will give law enforcement personnel an opportunity to experience the evidence-gathering camera and sign up for a no-cost Testing & Evaluation program. Attendees are encouraged to visit Viridian at booth #921 to discuss the T&E program and take advantage of an exclusive show special.

“We’re excited to be exhibiting at this important conference and talking to our friends in law enforcement about the Weapon-Mounted Camera,” said Viridian President and CEO Brian Hedeen. “The FACT Duty WMC provides a truly unobstructed perspective that did not exist before. It’s designed to equip officers for situations they may face while on duty. The NSA conference is the perfect opportunity to discuss the unique benefits and demonstrate firsthand why 500+ U.S. departments are in various stages of testing and implementing the WMC.”


The highly advanced FACT Duty WMC employs a 1080p full-HD digital camera with a microphone and 500 lumen tactical light. This distinctive weapon-mounted camera provides a clear view of critical use-of-force events from the end of the firearm, addressing limitations officers can face with body cameras. Viridian’s proprietary INSTANT-ON® technology automatically activates the camera and microphone whenever the officer draws the firearm from its holster. Not only does this eliminate risk of failure to manually turn on the camera during a critical event, but it also keeps the officer from fumbling with cumbersome equipment. Body and dash cameras were not designed to capture officer-involved shootings. However, Viridian WMCs were designed specifically for this purpose.

National Sheriffs’ Association

The NSA is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving law enforcement and criminal justice professionals and raising the level of professionalism among those in the field. Through the years, the NSA has provided programs for sheriffs, deputies, chiefs of police and others to perform their jobs in the best possible manner and to better serve the people of their cities, counties or jurisdictions. Each year, industry professionals gather for the annual NSA Conference and Exposition which provides second-to-none exhibits and training in all aspects of the duties and responsibilities for a sheriff’s office or department.

At this year’s NSA conference, booth visitors who enroll in the free T&E program will be eligible to receive a free Tactical Backpack while supplies last. This show special is an exclusive token of appreciation for qualified T&E sign-ups during the conference.
