City Council Approves Body-Worn and In-Car Mobile Video System

WatchGuard VISTA Body-Worn Camera

The quality of the equipment itself and the ease of use was far superior.

The City Council of Garden Grove, California voted unanimously to appropriate funding that will provide the Garden Grove Police Department with body-worn cameras and in-car video equipment manufactured by WatchGuard, Inc. (“WatchGuard”), the leading provider of mobile video solutions for law enforcement.

“WatchGuard Inc. demonstrated a complete understanding of the project; offered a system that best met the overall needs of the police department; received positive feedback from references; and offered competitive pricing, which is in line with the RFP requirements,” said Captain Travis Whitman of the Garden Grove Police Department. “The quality of the equipment itself and the ease of use was far superior.”

The award allows the department to outfit officers with WatchGuard’s VISTA® WiFi HD body-worn cameras and vehicles with WatchGuard’s 4RE® HD Panoramic in-car camera system. Using WatchGuard’s patent-pending technology, the body-worn and in-car cameras will operate seamlessly as a single integrated system, capturing synchronized video of an incident from multiple vantage points.

“Garden Grove and neighboring Orange County police departments like Tustin look to deploy robust in-car video systems as their primary witness, with the ability to easily extend the system to include body-worn cameras,” said Steve Coffman, WatchGuard President and COO. “The vehicle’s panoramic, third-person perspective combined with the officer’s body camera puts more ‘witnesses’ on scene, which is better for the agency and the public.”
