IPC Privacy Day Webcast
Law Enforcement and Surveillance Technologies

Free to Register
Law enforcement agencies are increasingly turning to surveillance technologies to perform policing functions and achieve operational efficiencies. Examples of these technologies include body-worn cameras, automated licence plate recognition, facial recognition and other artificial intelligence and biometric based technologies. While these technologies can aid law enforcement, they can also have a significant negative impact on privacy and other fundamental rights if not used with appropriate governance frameworks in place.
Please join us on January 28, at 9:30 a.m., when Ontario’s Information and Privacy Commissioner, Patricia Kosseim, will host a Privacy Day discussion on the promise and perils of surveillance technologies in law enforcement. The event is free and open to all.
