Boots rolls out body-worn video cameras to a further 225 stores
Boots has invested in staff safety by rolling out body-worn video cameras to an additional 225 UK stores.
The move follows an initial pilot in 83 shops that resulted in a reduction in the number of incidents involving violence and aggression towards store staff.
It is also part of a wider effort from Boots to support team members and attempts to prevent retail crime. The health and beauty retailer has also introduced additional panic alarms, a state-of-the-art CCTV monitoring centre unit, and headsets for team members to allow faster communication across its largest stores
Iona Blake, security and incident manager at Boots, said: “We’re pleased that introducing body-worn cameras is helping to make our stores a safer place to work and shop. Stores that consistently wear their devices have seen around a 45% reduction in incidents, but what’s even more compelling is hearing how much safer and more confident our team members feel when wearing them.”
