Since September 2016, after receiving approval from the Toronto Police Services Board to move forward with a Body-Worn Camera Project, the Toronto Police Service has been researching the best way forward based on the results of the 2015 Pilot Project.

Before seeking the assistance of a company through the Request for Proposals process, the Toronto Police Service has partnered with a Fairness Commissioner, William Mocsan, from HKA. This person has been brought on to oversee and provide advice on this large and complex process.

On Tuesday, October 17, 2017, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., in the Auditorium of Headquarters, the Service will be hosting its first Public Forum. Overseen by Inspector Michael Barsky and Mr. William Moscan, this meeting will provide interested parties with a high-level overview of the project. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions and, if deemed appropriate by the Fairness Commissioner, responses will be provided by the TPS.

This session will also be live-streamed with further details being released on October 16, 2017.

The Body-Worn Camera Project moves forward under a key principle of the Service’s modernization: to be actively accountable and trusted. To learn more about modernization, click here.
