Viridian® to Showcase Weapon-Mounted Cameras at 2019 IACP Conference
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – October 22, 2019 – Viridian Weapon Technologies will showcase the FACT Duty™ Weapon-Mounted Camera (WMC™) at the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Annual Conference and Exposition at McCormick Place West in Chicago, October 27-29. Officers and agencies in attendance are invited to visit booth 2304 to sign up for a free Trial Program, take advantage of exclusive show specials and find out why more than 500 U.S. agencies are in various stages of testing and implementing the WMC.
At the 2019 IACP expo, eligible booth visitors will have the opportunity to receive a complimentary backpack for participating in the FACT Duty Trial Program. This special is an exclusive token of appreciation for qualified registrants during the show.
“The Weapon-Mounted Camera is vital for policing today, and we continue to see it gaining major media attention and making a significant impact in departments all across the country,” said Viridian President and CEO Brian Hedeen. “More than 500 agencies are in the process of testing or deploying the device, and we look forward to talking to IACP attendees about the WMC’s unique benefits and how it plays a crucial role in modern policing.”
FACT Duty 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, 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 use-of-force incidents when the officer’s gun is drawn.
