    Good morning. First time poster on this board (hope I've not broken any rules).

    In the UK, and I imagine most of the world, dog theft is on the rise at an increasing rate (some sources report 250% increase in 2020). Whereas in days gone by most of these would occur in burglaries, it would appear now that men, women and children of all ages are being assaulted and robbed of their pets during walks.

    Sadly most of these beloved pets are not recovered and the offender's never identified.

    On that note, I've been considering the use of body worn video when exercising the dogs. It wouldn't prevent a theft where violence is used but it could lead to suspects being identified with the hope of locating missing pets. This is on the assumption that the camera isn't also stolen in the process.

    Does anyone, ideally in the UK/Europe use body worn video for any purpose and can reccomend a high quality/suitable camera. Pros and cons etc and general advice on this subject.

    Thank you
