Privacy

The Body-Worn Camera Working Group has been working closely with the Information & Privacy Commissioner of Ontario on various issues of privacy.  Police officers will be trained on how to manage situations that may be sensitive in nature.  Appropriate vetting and editing of body-worn camera data will be done for disclosure purposes, as required.

Any request to view or edit the data must be made through the relevant provisions of the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (MFIPPA).  Videos will only be deleted in accordance with retention periods.
