New super police car encounters patrol – IMY gives red light to 360 camera

The Privacy Protection Authority (IMY) has examined the technology developed for the new police cars. The result is, among other things, clear restrictions for civilian police cars.

Most of the new police cars are Volvo XC60 with 235 hp diesel engine.

The new police cars has, among other things, speed radar, five cameras that together provide a 360-degree all-round view, giving the opportunity to automatically read license plates on surrounding cars. There are also internal camcorders and microphones to record interrogations.

The cars were to be taken into full use during the autumn, but the police chose to wait to take the new technology into use pending an inspection by the Privacy Protection Authority (IMY).

IMY now gives the green light for painted police cars to use the new technology, but the police will receive instructions on how to use the technology.

For unpainted civilian police cars, the IMY puts a stop to it for the use of the 360 ​​cameras unless there is a concrete criminal suspicion. In other words, a civilian police car can not “trawl” along the roads in search of cars that are connected to criminals or that have a driving ban.

According to the police, there were “risks of goal conflicts between the ability to effectively prevent and combat crime on the one hand and personal integrity on the other”, states Dagens PS.
