The list below is for the more common issues that we receive questions about from our residents, businesses and visitors.

Body Worn Cameras

 Our Compliance and Parking service officers will now be wearing body worn cameras (BWC).  The body camera is attached to an Officer’s uniform and is clearly visible to everyone.

Body worn cameras are another tool we can use to improve community trust, accountability and transparency.  Footage from the cameras may assist with prosecution cases or when reviewing a community members complaint against an officer.  The body worn cameras will also provide additional safety for our officers.


For further information on body worn cameras, please see our  Standard Operating Procedure BWC

If you believe one of our Officers has inappropriately used a body camera, you can contact the Manager of Compliance & Parking Services on 9205 5555 or email info@yarracity.vic.gov.au
