ABC Vancouver to implement body-worn cameras for all VPD police officers


September 6, 2022

VANCOUVER — ABC Vancouver announced today that an ABC Majority on Council will request that the Vancouver Police Board implement the use of body-worn cameras for all VPD police officers on patrol 24/7 starting no later than Summer 2025.

“As technology and best practices evolve, so must the City of Vancouver,” says ABC Councillor Sarah Kirby-Yung.  “Body-worn cameras will help improve transparency and accountability while protecting the safety of front-line police officers.”

Federally, body-worn cameras are part of the RCMP’s Vision 150 modernization plans where the RCMP will deploy between 10,000 and 15,000 body-worn cameras to contract and federal contract police officers who interact with communities.

“Body-worn cameras in other jurisdictions have greatly reduced legal costs for police departments, decreased investigation times, and have created certainty in those investigations,” says Brian Montague ABC Council Candidate and 28-year VPD veteran who previously served as VPD Spokesperson. “Body-worn cameras are broadly supported by rank-and-file members and many community groups. Their usefulness in training cannot also be understated.”
