The cameras were worn by approximately 100 officers since May 18, 2015.

The evaluation report will be drafted by the body-worn camera working group and will consider all aspects of the pilot project, including technology, procedures and training. Throughout the pilot, the service has been gathering feedback from the community and the officers involved in the project. Their input will also be considered as part of the review.

The working group will make recommendations on the future of body-worn cameras in Toronto. The complete report and recommendations will be presented to Chief Mark Saunders by June 30, 2016, and will be considered by the Toronto Police Services Board at an upcoming meeting.
