Viridian® Weapon-Mounted Recording Device Headlining 2019 Police Security Expo
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – June 24, 2019 – Viridian Weapon Technologies is showcasing the FACT Duty™ Weapon-Mounted Camera (WMC™) at the 33rd annual Police Security Expo in Atlantic City from June 25-26. The expo will give law enforcement personnel an opportunity to experience Viridian’s critical evidence-gathering camera and join more than 500 U.S. departments that have used the WMC in signing up for a no-cost Testing & Evaluation program. Attendees are encouraged to visit Viridian at booth #1149 to discuss the T&E and implementation program, take advantage of an exclusive show special and attend informative seminars presented by Viridian’s own Law Enforcement Director, Kevin Skalicky, and Chief Legal Officer, Matthew Plowman, at 12:30 p.m. in room #317 both days to learn more about the necessity of the WMC for any law enforcement agency.
“This is Viridian’s second time exhibiting at the Police Security Expo, and we’re honored to be hosting a seminar this year to share more about the popular weapon-mounted recording technology and our team’s expertise in the area of mobile video evidence,” said Viridian President and CEO Brian Hedeen. “The FACT Duty WMC gives our friends in law enforcement a truly unobstructed perspective that did not exist before. It’s designed to equip officers for situations they may face while on duty. The expo is a great opportunity to discuss the unique benefits and demonstrate firsthand why 500+ U.S. departments are in various stages of testing and implementing the WMC.”
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.
At the 2019 Police Security Expo, eligible booth visitors who officially enroll in the no-cost T&E program will 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.
