Discussing the product, a spokesperson for the company said: “The VB400 is an easy-to-use device with battery life extending beyond a full shift. It reliably captures high-quality footage which is securely stored and organised with time, date and location details, maintaining the integrity of evidence to support incident investigations.

“The roll-out follows the launch of a campaign to combat abusive behaviour on the railways, spearheaded by ScotRail, the Scottish government and British Transport Police. The additional trust and transparency body cameras can provide supports the campaign’s goal of fostering a safer environment.”

ScotRail director of safety, engineering and sustainability, David Lister, said: “The safety of our staff and passengers is our top priority. Where body cameras have been used, we have already seen a positive impact on morale and staff confidence, as well as a decrease in reported incidents.

“We are making body cameras available to all of our frontline staff, and any team member who wishes to use one can now do so.”
