Temporary, monitored CCTV Cameras deployed
As with previous events, we will be deploying our temporary, monitored CCTV cameras in support of our operations to ensure public safety and help maintain traffic flow. The deployment of these cameras is part of our operations to help keep the event safe, peaceful and family-friendly and is in keeping with both provincial and federal privacy laws. Temporary signs are up in the area to ensure that the public is aware. The cameras will be taken down once the events have concluded. If you have concerns about our temporary camera deployment, please email [email protected].
We are seeking qualified candidates for both police officer and civilian positions. Thinking about a career in public service? VicPD is an equal-opportunity employer. Join VicPD and help us make Victoria and Esquimalt a safer community together.
