Open Letter: RCMP Body Worn Camera Project


Today, the Canadian Association of Elizabeth Fry Societies (CAEFS), Black Legal Action Centre (BLAC) and the Women’s Legal Education and Action Fund (LEAF) shared our concerns with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police’s (RCMP) Body Worn Cameras (BWC) Project in an open letter.

Despite public support for calls to divest from policing budgets, to invest directly in communities instead, and to address systemic racism and other inequalities, the RCMP is choosing to invest more money into BWCs. Our letter outlines are concerns regarding the implementation, use of, and review of the BWC project.
