MINNEAPOLIS, MN – Viridian Weapon Technologies is showcasing the FACT Duty™ Weapon-Mounted Camera (WMC™) at the Midwest Security and Police Conference Expo (MSPCE) from August 13-14 in Illinois this week. The event will give law enforcement personnel an opportunity to experience Viridian’s critical evidence-gathering camera and join more than 500 U.S. departments that have used the WMC in signing up for a no-cost Testing & Evaluation (T&E) program. Attendees are encouraged to visit Viridian at booth #719 to discuss the T&E and implementation program, take advantage of an exclusive show special and attend a seminar on “Trends in Video Evidence: WMCs” presented by Viridian, from 8:30-10 a.m. on August 14.

“Law enforcement personnel from all over the country will be able to experience the unique benefits of the Viridian WMC at this year’s Midwest Security and Police show,” said Viridian President and CEO Brian Hedeen. “Our team will be available both days to share and demonstrate why more than 500 agencies are in various stages of testing and implementing the device. The WMC provides a truly unobstructed perspective that did not exist before, and it is setting a new standard for policing and mobile video evidence.”

FACT Duty WMC

The highly advanced FACT Duty WMC employs a 1080p full-HD digital camera with a microphone and 500 lumen tactical light. This distinctive weapon-mounted camera provides a clear view of critical use-of-force events from the end of the firearm, addressing limitations officers can face with body cameras. 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, it also keeps the officer from fumbling with cumbersome equipment. Body and dash cameras were not designed to capture officer-involved shootings. However, Viridian WMCs were designed specifically for use-of-force incidents when the officer’s gun is drawn.

At the 2019 MSPCE show, eligible booth visitors who officially enroll in the no-cost T&E program will receive a free Tactical Backpack while supplies last. This show special is an exclusive token of appreciation for qualified T&E sign-ups during the conference.
