Now Every Cop Can Have a Body Worn Camera; VIEVU Offers 'Straight Shooter 25', the no Cost Startup Program for Law Enforcement Agencies

Zero Upfront Costs, Zero Hidden Cost Makes Deployment Easy for Public Safety Budgets

Includes Industry-Leading LE3 Camera, Software, Warranty and Access to Cloud Storage

SEATTLE, Sept. 2, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Due to the recent events in Ferguson, MO, VIEVU, the industry leader in body worn video (BWV) for law enforcement and emergency responders, announces 'Straight Shooter 25', a zero dollar startup program for agencies needing body cameras with no upfront costs.

Priced at just $25 per month per camera, VIEVU's Straight Shooter 25 offers police agencies the rugged LE3 HD camera, Free warranty replacement, Free VERIPATROL secure file management software that includes in-car mobile viewing, audio transcription and Free cloud storage access for encrypted video evidence.

"Any police department coast to coast can be one shot away from a controversy like Ferguson. Because of this communities are starting to leverage the benefits of BWV technology. We wanted to create the zero cost startup and easy monthly plan that our customers can budget and benefit from. We didn't want law enforcement customers paying scheming and confusing subscriptions with complicating user fees that other companies are providing. The Straight Shooter 25 is simple and transparent, just $25 per month; that's it. No hidden costs or fees," said Steve Lovell, VIEVU President.

Agencies continue to deploy BWV cameras as studies of police-worn BWV continue to show its benefits. A study of the Rialto PD in CA showed an 88% decline in complaints filed against officers, and a 60% decline in use-of-force. VIEVU cameras and evidence software solution are considered the industry standard used by Oakland PD, Phoenix PD and many other agencies worldwide.

The LE3 is a highly secure HD video camera designed for law enforcement. The LE3 was built not only to capture the best forensic video evidence possible but also to make operation simple with its large slide on/off switch for easy activation in stressful situations. VIEVU's accompanying VERIPATROL software exceeds current evidence standards and prevents tampering, editing or deleting video using a FIPS 140-2 compliant file authenticity process. It also prevents unauthorized access if the camera is lost or stolen.


Made for Cops by Cops! VIEVU is the leader in body worn video (BWV), providing secure, high-resolution video cameras for law enforcement, security, emergency medical services and retailers. Built on police experience, VIEVU body worn video cameras are used by more than 4,000 law enforcement agencies in 16 countries.
