These cameras could provide the guilt of an assailant and also provide innocence if being accused of an assault.

Anyone at work should be free from violence and be home safe. The front line nhs workers are no different. If it stops or curtails violence in either direction iam happy to sign this position. Sad that it has come to this though .
