For each eight-hour shift, a police officer’s body camera generates around 18 gigabytes of video data. Three shifts means 50+ Gb per day. In 14 days, 12 officers generate 1 Tb. Multiply that by, say, the 1,500 officers in the Calgary (Alberta) Police Department, and you’re talking about 1 petabyte of video data produced per year.
