Police officers will wear cameras to film their operations

Posted by Lemons on August 18th, 2016

Under the bill, currently under consideration in the Senate, strengthening the fight against organized crime and terrorism, a section provides the generalization port PTZ (or "pedestrian cameras") by the forces of the order.

Already in the experiment since 2013 in three regions, those ones have satisfied the police and gendarmes who are therefore considering for routine use, according to a parliamentary report. These portable spy camera are intended to prevent any incidents during operations, better find and prosecute offenders, as well as ensure "compliance by the officers and soldiers of their obligations," according to the same words of Article 32 of the law project.

Eric Nascimben, president of the company that builds Exavision the cameras in question, tells us about their operation: "Since the tender of the Ministry of Interior, there have been several changes intended by the agents who experienced . Now the LED that flashes when recording can be disabled by the user. That request related in particular the discretion needs during night operations. Similarly, the video is encrypted and a function of "stand-by" can give access to thirty seconds (or more) prior to the activation of the recording. "

This watch should not continue for much be taken as a monitoring index (which is firmly defend the authorities) as a progressive self-erasing the memory system is also planned.

Which could change
If the article is passed as is by the Senate, personal individual best spy camera which are provided may not have direct access to records to which they proceed. Similarly, those can not be kept for more than six months. An amendment tabled by Florent Boudie (PS), also would allow municipal police officers Priority Security Zones (ZSP) using these cameras, but as an experiment and for a period of two years after the promulgation of the law.

Another term of the article, though already voted in the National Assembly, could well be questioned. A sentence advocates indeed that recording can also be triggered at the request of the persons concerned by the intervention, which potentially put officers in a difficult position.

The exact modalities of implementation of this measure will be specified by a decree of the Council of State, issued after consultation with the National Commission on Informatics and Liberties (CNIL).
