Medina Police Deploy FACT Duty Weapon-Mounted Camera

Recommended Posts

Viridian Weapon Technologies recently announced that Minnesota’s Medina Police Department purchased and now deploys the company’s FACT Duty Weapon-Mounted Camera system. The FACT Duty attaches to a pistol’s Picatinny rail and activates immediately upon the draw.

Medina Police Chief Ed Belland announced that the department will deploy the WMCs to all sworn officers and use the devices to supplement videos already captured by dash cameras. His department reached the conclusion to implement after four months of testing. Belland and his team were impressed by the WMCs’ ability to record crisp, clear video.

FACT Duty Features

The FACT Duty fits standard police duty weapons and holsters and records automatically, providing an unobstructed view from the end of an officer’s firearm. The need for this product continues to be validated in current events throughout the United States.

Viridian has created a new category for law enforcement with the introduction of the FACT camera. This unique Weapon-Mounted Camera provides an unobstructed view of critical use-of-force events from the end of the firearm, addressing limitations officers can face with body cameras.

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. This eliminates risk of failure to manually turn on the camera during a critical event. Meanwhile, it also keeps the officer from fumbling with cumbersome equipment.

“We are happy to add another local department to our growing list of agencies that have deployed the FACT Duty,” said Viridian President and CEO Brian Hedeen. “Our WMC provides a perspective that did not exist before it was in the field. This isn’t just a local solution though, and seeing the impact the FACT Duty has had nationwide has been rewarding. It is our hope that the WMCs help Medina and all other departments across the country feel more prepared for situations they may face while on duty.”

Easy Purchase and Implementation

After the purchase of the WMC, there are no maintenance fees, monthly charges or other significant expenses required. This results in significantly lower comparative data management costs than other evidentiary camera systems. The FACT Duty is a one-and-done solution for law enforcement administrators and purchasing departments.

The WMCs fit on existing standard-issue firearms and fit seamlessly in multiple duty holster platforms. This commonality also makes it easy for implementation by any law enforcement agency. Additionally, the cameras feature a recording time of over three hours to handle virtually any scenario. They also incorporate secured data access and are easily rechargeable.
