BP invests in staff safety by rolling out body cameras to stores with higher levels of crime

BP has invested in the security of its retail teams by introducing body-worn cameras at stores experiencing higher levels of abuse and crime.

The move is also being accompanied by the roll out of a retail crime intelligence platform across its 300 company-owned stores.

Sonya Adams, VP mobility & convenience retail in the UK, said: “Safety comes first at BP; we are always looking at ways we can create a safer working environment for colleagues and a better retail experience for customers.

“We serve millions of customers every week with the vast majority of transactions being pleasant and positive. However, in line with the rest of the retail sector, we are seeing an increase in crime and abuse of our colleagues, and that’s unacceptable.”

The rollout of Reveal body cameras to BP’s network follows a successful pilot last year when they were tested at eight company-owned stores in the UK with good results. The cameras are currently in use at 70 stores across the UK and are being rolled out at pace to more stores with high rates of incidents.

The Auror retail crime intelligence platform, which aims to help reduce verbal abuse incidents and tackle retail crime, will be adopted by all of BP’s 300 company-owned stores over the coming months.
