Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

THE Queens­land Rac­ing In­tegrity Com­mis­sion will im­ple­ment body-worn cam­eras for its In­tegrity Reg­u­la­tion Unit, Rac­ing Min­is­ter Grace Grace has an­nounced. Ms Grace said in a first for the rac­ing in­dus­try, in­tegrity of­fi­cers had in re­cent weeks tri­alled body-worn cam­eras for use in the course of their du­ties, in­clud­ing for the col­lec­tion of ev­i­dence. QRIC has com­mit­ted close to $20,000 to buy 12 body-worn cam­eras and train IRU of­fi­cers in their use. “I see this as a great op­por­tu­nity for QRIC to take ad­van­tage of this cam­era tech­nol­ogy to as­sist our of­fi­cers in their ev­i­dence-col­lec­tion du­ties,” Ms Grace said. She said it was a step to­wards im­prov­ing safety.
