The Attorney-General has tabled the Commission’s Surveillance in Public Places: Final Report in Parliament today.
The report responds to the growing use and sophistication of surveillance technologies. It provides recommendations to modernise surveillance laws and promote the responsible use of surveillance devices in public places.
The report completes a two-stage inquiry into the widespread use of privacy-invasive technologies. The Commission’s Workplace Privacy: Final Report was the first stage and proposed the creation of workplace privacy legislation to regulate potentially privacy-invasive acts and practices in the workplace.
