On Tuesday, June 5, 2018, the Toronto Police Service released a Request for Information (RFI) on MERX as the next step in researching how best to implement Service-wide body-worn cameras.

Approved by the Toronto Police Services Board in September 2016, the Service has hosted public forums and continued to consider the most effective way of equipping all frontline officers with body-worn technology.

The Service’s efforts have been guided by the results of a 2015 pilot project that saw 100 officers test two different types of technology over the course of a year. To see the results of the pilot project, click here.

The RFI will allow the Service to gather information from vendors on what technology and support is available for a project of this size and scope.

The Service has been engaged with a Fairness Commissioner from HKA. Their role is to oversee and provide advice on this large and complex process.
