Body Worn Camera


The Calgary Police Service body worn camera program is guided by the following five key principles:
  1. Collection of evidence
  2. Enhance transparency, public trust and confidence
  3. Enhance officer accountability and professionalism
  4. Protect officers from unfounded allegations of misconduct
  5. De-escalate a situation

The Body Worn Camera Program is currently reviewing submissions made through the Request for Proposals which was open until Wednesday, October 11, 2017.

 
The matter of balancing privacy with the community benefits of using the technology has been top of mind since the inception of the program. As part of this careful and considered review, we have worked closely with the office of the Privacy Commissioner to ensure they are happy with the steps we are taking. A copy of our Privacy Impact Assessment can be found at this link.
 
An updated Body Worn Camera Policy is in development.
