The Halton Regional Police Service has launched an In Car Camera System (ICCS) pilot program for 2016. Operational field testing is currently underway with three traffic enforcement vehicles outfitted with in-car camera technology. Two vehicles are operating out of #1 District (Milton) and 1 vehicle is operating out of #2 District (Oakville).
This ICCS pilot will explore the use of this technology as an investigative tool to assist officers in their traffic enforcement activities and investigations. It may also be used to supplement written evidence and courtroom testimony.
The In Car Camera Systems is an excellent example of our commitment to implementing innovative policing practices and ensuring the highest levels of professional standards consistent with community expectations. It is the policy of the Halton Regional Police Service to utilize the ICCS for the purposes of law enforcement and to promote public safety, while balancing the public’s right to privacy.
