Credit Strategy – Body-worn cameras to be mandatory for bailiffs

Industry News | 22/07/19

The government has moved to introduce compulsory body-worn cameras as part of efforts to protect people from rogue bailiffs. Although the government acknowledges that the “vast majority” of enforcement agents carry out their work professionally, it has become increasingly concerned that some bailiffs continue to employ intimidating tactics that put both themselves and often vulnerable consumers at risk. As such, the Ministry of Justice has announced that body-worn cameras will be mandatory to ensure debt is collected in a fair and safe manner, with those who fail to do so held to account.
