Temporary Cameras To Be Deployed For Santa Claus Parade Operations

Friday, November 24, 2017

Victoria, BC – As with previous events, we will be deploying temporary cameras in support of our operations to ensure public safety during this year’s Santa Claus Parade.

While there is no information indicating a known threat to this event, public gatherings celebrating the holiday have been the targets of past attacks world-wide. The deployment of these cameras is part of our operations to help keep this event fun, safe and family-friendly. In addition to enhancing security, previous deployments of these cameras have helped locate lost children and seniors at large-scale public events and have provided for the effective coordination in responding to medical events.  

As always, we are deploying these temporarily placed, monitored cameras in public spaces and in line with B.C. & national privacy legislation.

If you have questions or concerns about our temporary CCTV camera deployment, please email engagement@vicpd.ca
