Minister for Justice Helen McEntee is proposing new legislation on the use, not only of body-worn cameras, but also other recording devices for gardaí.
They can only be used to prevent, detect or prosecute criminal offences, secure public order or safety and safeguard - or prevent threats to - public security.is to bring the outline of the new Bill to Cabinet tomorrow but the measures are unlikely to become law until next year.
The move has been welcomed by the garda associations. The associations representing gardaí have been calling for years for their members to be allowed to carry body-worn cameras but this has been opposed by the ICCL.
