VLRC on CCTV

”Surveillance affects all Victorians, whether we are shopping, catching public transport, driving on major roads, or attending a sporting event,”
The use of closed-circuit television cameras (CCTV) in public places has grown rapidly in Melbourne and other areas of Australia, prompting the Victorian Law Reform Commission (VLRC) to propose regulations on its use.
“Surveillance affects all Victorians, whether we are shopping, catching public transport, driving on major roads, or attending a sporting event,” said VLRC chairperson Neil Rees.

The VLRC proposes reforms for surveillance in public spaces. The commission is seeking public feedback on the proposals. Download the paper here: www.lawreform.vic.gov.au/
