Body Cameras!

All GridLock Security Officers wear a body-camera

  • Extensive research shows that people tend to adhere to social norms and change their conduct once they’re aware that their behavior is being observed. Under camera scrutiny, they become more conscious that unacceptable behaviors will be captured on film, with detection “perceived as certain.” Body-worn cameras convey a straight-forward, raw and uncut message: ‘You are being watched, videotaped, and expected to follow the rules’.

  • This “self-awareness effect” caused by the camera’s “neutral third eye” affects the psyches of officers and other belligerent individuals  alike, prompting the other party to “cool down” aggressive actions and deterring officers “from reacting with excessive or unnecessary force.” Neither party wants to get caught engaging in socially undesirable behavior that may have costly consequences.
