Parking tickets

Parking services trialling video cameras

In an effort to improve the health and safety of our parking officers, we will be trialling body-worn video cameras from 18 April until the end of May.

Body-worn video cameras have been proven to reduce escalated interactions between enforcement officials and members of the public.

Officers will be equipped with a camera and a badge informing the public that they are wearing a camera. The camera will only be activated when an interaction escalates and the officer feels unsafe. When this happens, officers will advise the person the camera is operating as soon as practicable.
