Proposed trial of Body Worn Cameras

March 08, 2018

Peninsula Community Legal Centre along with 26 organisations has signed an open letter to the Victoria Police Commissioner regarding the trial of body worn cameras by Victoria Police.

This  letter outlines a series of crucial accountability and oversight measures that must be implemented if the program is to achieve the objectives of enhancing safety for both officers and community members, and increasing police transparency and public confidence.

We are calling for:

  1. clear and publicly available guidelines, concerning data retention periods;
  2. limits on discretionary use by  officers and penalties for failure to activate;
  3. breadth of access for victims, their lawyers and the public; and
  4. rigorous evaluation prior to further expansion
