Safety on SA public transport has been given a boost with the government revealing it will introduce body worn cameras for inspectors on trains and trams.
Authorities say a trial has already delivered improvements and it will use the devices to take trouble makers to court.
The Government announcing that body cameras will be rolled out across our train and tram network.
A total of 69 body cameras will be rolled out across the SA train and tram network in an effort to make trips safer for ticket inspectors and commuters. (9news)
“Too often you'll see violence bad behaviour on our trains,” Transport Minister Stephan Knoll told 9News.
Similar to the cameras used by police, the devices will capture passengers every move. The cameras can record for an entire eight hour shift and take high quality video evidence vital for prosecutions.
“My advice to the morons out there who are going to be violent on our trains is you are going to be caught,” Mr Knoll said.
The bodycams record high quality vision throughout an entire eight hour shift and this vision can be used as evidence in legal proceedings if required. (9news)
The body worn cameras are similar to those worn by police and will collect any evidence should an anti-social or violent incident happen. (9news)The roll out of 69 new devices is welcomed by commuters, who hope it will deter attacks against inspectors and improve behaviour overall.
