Body worn camera scheme fails accountability test

Body worn camera scheme fails accountability test

By Karin Derkley

Police 


Body cameras will be worn by 11,000 Victorian police by 2020, but it will be up to individual officers to decide when to turn them on or off. And access to the video footage will be severely restricted in a scheme that critics say has been poorly implemented and will undermine police accountability and community confidence. The state government last week announced it was deploying 800 body worn cameras by the end of the year, with 11,000 police officers to operate the cameras by 2020. The rollout takes place after a six-week pilot earlier this year.
