Durham Regional Police have launched a review looking into whether body-worn cameras should become a permanent part of their uniform. This decision will come following a pilot project that involved 80 front line officers. Advocates say body cameras could benefit training, investigations, and prosecution outcomes by providing better evidence. Concerns include the issues of privacy, video security, and consultation with communities about their implementation. Body cameras are currently being used by police in Calgary, Alberta; police forces in Toronto and Thunder Bay are also heavily considering the idea.
