Watch mode provides officers with the ability to record interventions and other dangerous situations. Watch mode also has the ability to only record video in regions where it is illegal to capture audio without a subject's permission. Before using watch mode confirm with an admin that this setting is configured correctly.
Watch Mode: Capturing Video
Watch Mode is the recommended tool to document potentially dangerous or sensitive situations. This allows officers to capture video footage of events they may encounter during their shift.
Note - Watch Mode can be a powerful deterrent for violent behavior. We recommend notifying suspects they are on camera while performing an intervention. Develop a script and protocol for how you plan to use Watch Mode
