This event brings together policy-makers, practitioners and academics to share learning about the use of body-worn police cameras in police responses to and the prosecution of domestic abuse incidents. It will combine speaker presentations and interactive sessions aimed at learning lessons from research findings and policy and practice developments. It will showcase the research findings of an N8 Policing Research Partnership funded collaborative project of the University of Leeds, West Yorkshire Police and Cumbria Constabulary, which explored the impacts of police use of body-worn video at incidents of domestic abuse.

A particular focus of the day will be on how police and prosecuting bodies can respond more effectively and efficiently to domestic abuse incidents. It aims to strengthen and inform the process of learning from research and practice by identifying and disseminating best practice recommendations and lessons. It will be of value to practitioners and scholars who have a professional interest in the use of body-worn cameras and/or domestic abuse.
