Transparency and Accountability in Law Enforcement with the Panasonic’s Arbitrator Body Worn Cameras and Arbitrator 360 HD Solutions

Body Worn Cameras in Today’s World
Now more than ever Police agencies are beginning to equip their officers with body worn cameras and in-car camera solutions. The hope is that these cameras will increase transparency and accountability for both law enforcement and the public when an incident is called into question.
Body worn cameras are still relatively new, research on their effectiveness is limited, but the Justice Department has reported a decrease in the number of complaints from the public in areas where body worn cameras have been implemented. In fact, over the course of one year, the police department in Rialto, California, in partnership with the University of Cambridge-Institute of Criminology (UK), reported the following statistics since randomly assigning body-worn cameras to various officers:
• 60 percent reduction in officer use of force incidents
• Half the number of use of force incidents for shifts with cameras compared to shifts without
• 88 percent reduction in number of citizen complaints between the year prior to and following camera deployment
Panasonic’s Arbitrator 360 HD takes Evidence Collection to the Next Level
Panasonic has taken video-evidence capture and management to the next level with the Arbitrator 360°™ HD and the NEW Arbitrator® Body Worn Camera. Delivering HD-quality evidence capture in vehicle and on foot, the Arbitrator evidence collection system improves incident documentation, streamlines operations, enhances officer safety and accelerates convictions. And now with the ability to export, store and manage video on the Panasonic Unified Evidence Management System (UEMS), law enforcement agencies can achieve total digital asset management and strengthen every link in their chain of evidence.
The Arbitrator 360°™ HD rugged in-car digital video recording system leads the industry in image quality and precision for unmatched critical mobile video evidence capture. Its full HD 1080p front camera delivers amazing clarity and ultra-accurate color representation, and the system supports up to five cameras of simultaneous recording for a full 360-degree view to maximize situational awareness.
Military-tough and Intelligently Engineered
The Arbitrator 360 HD system is MIL-STD-810G-tested for resistance to shock, vibration, extreme temperatures, dust, moisture and other harsh conditions, built to survive the demands of law enforcement use. Based on years of extensive feedback from law enforcement agencies across the country, the Arbitrator 360 HD system’s video technology is purpose-built and designed on the foundation of Panasonic i-PRO surveillance cameras.

Efficient and Tamper-proof Evidence Storage
The system’s Video Processing Unit supports up to two 512GB solid-state hard drives and provides full Power-over-Ethernet to attached IP cameras. The system is equipped with a tamper-resistant key lock, and recording can be activated based on predefined triggers such as the use of the vehicle’s sire or other devices. Transferring and managing evidence is simple with the system’s built-in wireless options via offload using the Arbitrator 360 HD CommandR application.

Capture Evidence from Every Angle
The Arbitrator 360 HD main camera offers the industry’s widest viewing angle, equipped with a 360X digital zoom and ultra-low-light viewing, you can capture clear evidence from a distance, even at night. Arbitrator 360 HD makes recording seamless, with 16 automatic and manual triggers to ensure you capture clear evidence – from double-tapping a wireless mic, to opening a back door, to turning on the light bar. In addition, the system provides the ability to record evidence simultaneously from up to five different cameras and three audio inputs, with pre-recoding for up to 90 seconds so you won’t miss a second of critical evidence capture.

Storage Options
The Panasonic SafeServ™ Management software enables user configuration, evidence management preferences and the ability to export evidence for use in court or other areas. By cultivating video evidence from the Arbitrator Body Worn Camera in unison with the Arbitrator 360° HD in-car video system and Panasonic fixed surveillance cameras, law enforcement agencies can now depend on a unified evidence platform to preserve every link in the chain of evidence. Plus, with flexible storage options, evidence can be stored locally, through the cloud or using a hybrid of both to help control TCO.
