Even the Fbi, customs and the coast guard have the right to conduct camera monitoring without permission from the data Inspection board. It is the content of the bill that the government submitted to the council for opinion.
The new law is supposed to enter into force the first of January next year.
according to the administrative process for granting police authorisations in the day for a long time. According to him, there are examples that it is sometimes taken over a year.
– Then, the crime moved on or changed in character, and so we can't have it, " says Damberg.
the Government believes that the camera monitoring of places where the public has access, as the streets and squares, can contribute to law enforcement in several different ways. For example, the sense of security increase for people or so, the cameras can get away drug sales from a particular location. The images can also be important evidence when crimes are committed. In addition, the cameras can facilitate police intervention by the police can follow events in real-time.
Dambergs ambition is that the police should be able to move the camera surveillance system to new locations as fast as crime.
"But it is the same requirements on integrity," he says.
should be used and how the images may be used or saved shall be the same as today. The Swedish data inspection board will continue to verify that the kamerabevakningen follow the rules. The difference compared with today is that the police, the Fbi, the coast guard and the customs themselves must judge whether the interest of the camera monitoring outweighs the individual's interest in not being monitored.
Any estimate of how many more cameras that the police will put up, the government has not done.
"This is partly because the police must be able to justify every camera you put up out of the integritetshänseende, but it also costs money with the cameras," says Damberg.
the Government has no plans to give the police extra funds to buy and manage more cameras.
the Conservatives welcome the bill, but thinks that the government has been too slow to find it.
the Party's rättspolitiske spokesperson Johan Forssell was also stated that the M wants to quadruple the police video surveillance and give the police money for it.
