Cost savings with Black Mamba Protection’s BMPpro
This deployment has the opportunity to reduce costs in the following areas:
- Reducing the number of paid liability claims against the City.
- Reducing the number of staff resources expended by Internal Affairs and the City
- Attorney’s Office staff investigating and researching claims against the City. Body worn cameras have the potential to serve as a risk-management tool to reduce paid liability claims against the City. An often cited study that demonstrates the potential of this was conducted by the Rialto Police Department in Southern California. In partnership with the University of Cambridge, the Rialto Police Department evaluated body worn cameras for a twelve month period and found that there was an 88% decrease in the number of complaints filed against officers and nearly a 60% decline in use-of-force when body worn cameras were implemented.

- It stands to reason that if there are fewer complaints and use-of-force incidents, then the hours investigating those claims and paid liability claims should also decrease.
