Levi's Stadium is the home of the San Francisco 49ers and hosts other major events. Its capacity is approximately 70,000.
After seeing the Visual Labs system's success at neighboring Avaya Stadium, Levi's Stadium began its body camera program in June 2016 at the Copa América Centenario.
Guest service team leads were the first users of the cameras.
Starting in May 2017, the program expanded to additional guest services staff, off-duty police officers, and other security personnel. The system is used at all
49ers football games and other major events.
Depending on the event, up to 100 smartphone body cameras are deployed at the stadium.
The 49ers Management company worked with its legal counsel, guest services team, and its security contrator (Landmark) to develop policies and procedures. Visual Labs
led training sessions with both website and application users before, during, and after the initial events. Now self-sufficient, a Levi's Stadium Event Coordinator leads the deployment
on game days to help check in and check out the smartphones. Given the system's ease of use, the stadium does not need to employ additional personnel to manage the
Smartphones running Visual Labs deployed at a concert.

Jim Mercurio Vice President of Stadium Operations & General Manager
"Ensuring the safety and security of visitors and staff every time they visit Levi’s Stadium is the number one priority for the 49ers stadium operations
team on a daily basis. Advanced technology has become an indispensable component of our event security plans and our partnership with Visual Labs not
only helps give our staff piece of mind as they interact with stadium guests, but it greatly enhances our ability to achieve our safety and security
objectives for the venue."
