Canada’s police investigate technology that accesses your home security cameras

  • Canadian law enforcement agencies are investigating the possibility of using a for-profit program called Fusus.
  • Fusus would enable police to monitor citizens without a warrant.
  • People may use technology to watch people in their neighborhoods and search for strangers.

Canadian law enforcement agencies are investigating the possibility of using a for-profit program called Fusus, which gives them access to security camera footage that is privately owned by individuals and companies.

Police claim this technology makes their jobs easier, and it is becoming more widely used across the country. Fusus would enable police to monitor citizens without a warrant, so privacy commissioners want to be consulted if officers decide to use it.

Accessing security cameras

Utilizing technology, the Atlanta Police Department (APD) and other law enforcement organizations are better equipped to combat and prevent crime while maintaining public safety.

Fusus reaches out to individuals to register their cameras, and 18,500 cameras are owned by people who are open to sharing footage. Officers can now obtain additional information before arriving at the scene, and post-crime investigation is made easier by technology.

The use of a technology known as Fusus is being considered by Canadian police services as a possible aid in the investigation of crimes such as vehicle theft and violence against intimate partners.

On the other hand, detractors contend that the technology is flawed and may cause an overreaction to crimes such as vehicle theft and domestic abuse.

Concerns concerning police manipulation and the possibility of creating a fear of crime are also brought up by the technology. Christopher Schneider, one of the professors of sociology, thinks that people may use technology to watch people in their neighborhoods and search for strangers.

It’s also concerning that there is insufficient data regarding the efficacy of police body cams. The use of Fusus or comparable products has not been disclosed by several police services, including the McMaster University Security Services, Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), Edmonton Police Service, and Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).
