G4S & Body-Worn Video Cameras – Call for Evidence

Smith, K. (Consultant)

Description

In the UK since December 2016, G4S have asked their housing welfare officers to wear body worn video cameras when they conduct home visits. They did not published an operational policy or privacy impact assessment (PIA) regarding this practice and it was unclear how video data was being collected, stored and accessed. Asylum Matters conducted research to find out how much asylum-seekers in G4S accommodation understand about this new policy. I submitted evidence to this enquiry (Asylum Matters, August 2017).
