Toronto Police Service has launched its body-worn camera pilot project. The year-long project will see 100 officers, from four different areas of the Service, test three different pieces of body-worn camera equipment.
The body-worn cameras will be activated every time an officer responds to a call for service or is investigating an individual during the course of their duties. Officers are expected to notify the public of the body-worn camera as soon as reasonably possible and officers have been trained on issues of privacy and human rights.

The Service has partnered with the Information & Privacy Commissioner, the Ontario Human Rights Commission, the Ministry of the Attorney General and the Toronto Police Association to develop a procedure that addresses issues of privacy, retention, and disclosure.

The officers involved, from the TAVIS Rapid Response Team, Traffic Services Motor Squad, 55 Division and 43 Division, were part of a training program to comprehensively incorporate the body-worn cameras into their day-to-day responsibilities.
These surveys, along with input from the officers involved, will be analyzed by the Working Group and recommendations on the future of body-worn cameras will be made to the Chief of Police.
Anyone with questions or comments about the Body Worn Pilot Project can submit them toBWC.FAQ@torontopolice.on.ca or by joining the conversation at #TOCopCams on Twitter.
