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.

A little time out with the camera, it's been a while!
Kia ora Matamata, Neighbours Day Aotearoa 2022 will be encouraging people to connect through kai. This could be sharing a cuppa, fresh produce, a recipe or hosting a picnic or BBQ.
We thought we would kick things off now by encouraging people to share a favourite recipe.
This could be a whānau favourite, your aunty’s special chutney, a secret (or potentially not!) curry dish, or your most-loved cake.
We’ll then share your recipe throughout the land for people to try, share, and enjoy within their communities.
Either email your recipe to firstname.lastname@example.org or submit it here - www.neighboursday.org.nz...
