"January 2007".


"Continued technical difficulties and significant changes to hardware and software, from the time of initial implementation of the in-car cameras, resulted in a limited ability to properly evaluate the system or the pilot project goals. Acknowledging the limitations, member perceptions and data were collected to provide some evaluation of the system and goals. While officers tended to be concerned about ‘big brother’ monitoring and the potential for discipline at the outset of the in-car camera project, by the end of the evaluation period, officers tended to be more positive. The benefits of the cameras for traffic-related policing, rather than for general patrol or street level investigations, were particularly recognised by officers."--Conclusions and Recommendations.
