Body-Worn Video Cameras:- the use of Body-Worn Video is being rolled out by Marine Scotland Compliance, principally in areas where it is felt that it would be most beneficial in providing protection for our Fishery Officers. We may also be trialling it across a number of other areas to see whether it is a useful resource, beyond providing protection. This is not a covert activity. The equipment will be worn openly and officers should announce when it is being used so that everyone is aware. If you have any questions please email us.
