We Say/You Say: Body Cams

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Cambridge Edition

Hi neighbours,

What do you think about body cams being worn by authorities?

A local council in the Waikato region has rejected a plan to enforce body cam use for council officials conducting fieldwork.

Some council staff had reportedly received death threats from members of the public and this prompted councillors to call for mandatory body cam use for some staff in December 2020.

Legal advice received by councillors showed that filming members of the public could be a breach of privacy and potentially be an offence under the Bill of Rights. There was also concern about when footage can be released under the Official Information Act.

Would you support the move in your community? Let us know your thoughts in the comments and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comments used in the Cambridge Edition.
