Good progress continues to be made with the roll out of body worn video.  Clearly, there are more challenges when using such equipment covertly.  The present focus in covert deployment has been on where there will be interaction with a subject, and a covert system is currently being tested within a training environment.  Engagement on the covert use of this technology continues with the Body Worn Video National Working Group.
