Did you know the Police pay £20 to have your photo/video taken?

Viper Police database tour around Universities, local community centres etc giving students (& any other people) £20 cash for having their photo taken.

Lasting just 5 minutes, it could give you a theoretical £/hr wage of £240, however, it seems some Police forces try and only pay people £5-£10 for it.

You need to get your photo / video taken in a booth which is then used in digital Police line ups.

What is the photo/videos used for?

Certain Police cases call for the Police to confirm that the victim can identify the accused, they used to do lineups like you remember seeing on TV but these can obviously cause stress to the victims + take ages to recruit people. With video it’s cheaper as they can reuse the footage for multiple cases but obviously, they’ve got to continually update the database to make if fair.

Who can apply?

Literally EVERYONE


How much will I get paid?

£20 is the going rate, anything below that should be looked down on. No harm in asking for more. We’ve seen as low as £5.

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,570 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
