The Domino's Pizza on Biljmerplein in Amsterdam Zuidoost will equip its delivery workers with bodycams to protect them against robbery. "It is almost certain that this plan will continue", spokesperson Marianne Kemps of Domino's Pizza said to Het Parool. 

Domino's already successfully experimented with bodycams, subsidized by the center for crime prevention and security CCV, in Rotterdam. In the areas where meal deliverers wore bodycams, the robberies stopped. "We saw that wearing the bodycams alone deters robbers. In addition, the delivery staff felt safer", Kemps said.
