Viridian Weapon Technologies continues to educate and inform law enforcement on its FACT Duty Gun Camera, the only product designed to show what really happened in an officer involved shooting. This time Viridian will attend the Texas Police Chiefs Association (TCPA) 2022 Conference in Galveston Island, Texas April 11-14, 2022 and can be found in booth #210.
The TCP promotes and enhances the professional development of all executive and management personnel within duly constituted law enforcement agencies in the state of Texas. The conference will feature speakers to help keep attendees ahead of the trends with informative topics for both large and small agencies. The 2021 show saw a record number of vendors and this year promises to follow suit.
“We work with several agencies in Texas and have had our highest profile use-case to date for the FACT Duty in the state as well,” said Viridian President and CEO, Brian Hedeen. “The WMC is the only technology designed to capture an OIS from the unobstructed view of the gun, and footage from these WMCs continues to provide critical evidence in court.”
The Viridian WMC provided crucial evidence in an officer-involved shooting (OIS) trial in Vernon, Texas in 2020. The jury convicted the defendant of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon on a public official. The WMC provided the critical evidence in the case by showing the defendant pointing a sawed-off shotgun at Vernon Police Corporal T.J. Session during an exchange of gunfire in which both Corporal Session and the defendant were shot and wounded.
The highly advanced WMC employs a 1080p full-HD digital camera with a microphone and 500 lumen tactical light. Viridian’s proprietary INSTANT-ON® technology automatically activates the camera and microphone whenever the officer draws the firearm from its holster. Not only does this eliminate risk of failure to manually turn on the camera during a critical event, but it also keeps the officer from fumbling with cumbersome equipment.
