Digital Ally’s Body-Worn Cameras Add Layer of Protection for Security Personnel
Lenexa, KS, July 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Digital Ally, Inc. (NASDAQ: DGLY), which develops, manufactures and markets advanced digital technology products for law enforcement, homeland security and commercial security applications, was the 2019 Golden Eagle Award winner at the National Sports Safety and Security Conference & Exhibition, in New Orleans, Louisiana. The award recognizes outstanding security projects executed in sporting venues.
Digital Ally won the prestigious industry award for the deployment of its patented FirstVu HD body-worn camera technology at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The technology captures clear video evidence of interactions between staff and patrons and has generated very positive feedback from security officers at the stadium who feel an extra layer of protection from potential false accusations and aggressive patrons.
An example of the effectiveness and efficiency of the cameras was highlighted in the Company’s case study. In an incident where a MetLife Stadium patron claimed a security officer used unjust language while interacting with them, the camera’s recording clearly showed this had not occurred, and the patron was forced to recant the accusation. Without the camera, this would have been another he said/she said situation that could have discredited MetLife security and left it open to liability.
“Stadiums and entertainment venues are seeking out our video solutions to create a better overall experience for their fans and customers. Our technology deployment at MetLife Stadium in 2018 was designed to meet the security team’s goal of improving accountability and transparency for security, reducing civil liability, and having a tool to help de-escalate volatile situations,” commented Stanton E. Ross, CEO of Digital Ally. “As we have seen in other installations with law enforcement and corporate clients, our technology is able to meet these important goals, and it does so in an easy-to-use manner that requires minimal training while offering instantaneous offloading of video at the end of the events. Our complete video solution provides onsite professional support, including deployment of units, maintenance, and video management.”
