Hospitals in the UK are to install body cameras on their security guards in an attempt to reduce violence against staff and patients.

Scunthorpe General, Goole and Grimsby’s Diana, Princess of Wales hospitals in the Humber region of the UK will use the cameras to record digital images and sound to be used as evidence for prosecutions against offenders.

Officers wearing the equipment will wear high-visibility green armbands so they can be identified.

Northern Lincolnshire and Goole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust said its security contractor, ISS Mediclean, had invested £12,500 ($19,924) in the camera technology and new uniforms for its staff.
