Body Worn Cameras in Canada
What Police Governance Bodies Need to Know

with Stefan Schurman, Senior Regional Manager and Inspector (Ret.) Lance Valcour, O.O.M., Senior Strategic Advisor of Axon Public Safety Canada

December 10 | 12:00 pm EST

While body worn cameras have been used in the United States and internationally for years, there were only a few police services in Canada using them prior to 2020. However, after a number of incidents both in Canada and the United States, numerous Canadian governing boards and services have decided to move forward with BWC programs.

Police governance leaders across the country have numerous questions about potential BWC programs. They include:
  • Where will the videos be stored and are they secure?
  • Should officers be allowed to turn the cameras off and on?
  • What are the privacy related concerns? How are they managed?
  • With ongoing discussions around “de-funding” the police, are BWC a good investment at this time?
  • What are the true costs of a BWC program?
  • Are there any opportunities to leverage innovative technology like BWC to support our response to mental health calls?
  • Is there a standard policy that we can use?
  • How will we measure and communicate officer compliance with our policy?
  • How do we ensure that the technology doesn’t become out-dated a year after it has been implemented?
  • Should we involve our community in BWC policy discussions?
  • With the “cloud” now being so prevalent in Canada, is this the best way to go? If so, why?
Please join us on December 10th, 2020 at 12pm EST to hear from our partners at Axon Public Safety Canada who are leading the vast majority of BWC implementations in Canada and around the world. They will provide, in a non-sales oriented fashion, their honest answers to all your questions.
