The Calgary Police Service (CPS) has been using In-Car Videos (ICV) since 2012 and Body-worn Cameras (BWC) since 2019. Both ICV and BWCs capture and record audio and video documenting police interactions with the public for transparency and accountability purposes.  This presentation focuses on CPS’ journey to implement both BWC and ICV discussing such factors as retention, storage, policies and procedures, financial implications, training and disclosure. Additionally, privacy, privacy impact assessments as well as other legal concerns are also discussed. Some claim BWC and ICV provide an unbiased, independent account of police – community interactions for both police and citizens. But do they? Join Stuart Rennie and Uta Fox as they provide the answer and more.
