Dash/Action Cam Footage of Traffic Offences
Members of the public who have dash cam (or similar) video footage of traffic offences, including those resulting in traffic crashes, can provide police with footage for investigation.
To submit footage, the person who made the recording must also provide police with a witness statement, and understand that they may be required to give evidence in court – although this would be limited to occasions where a charged person pleads not guilty and elects a court hearing. This requirement is a result of the footage being an exhibit, and the necessity that a party tendering any exhibit as evidence must be able to prove its provenance (origin) and continuity (that it is unaltered).
Footage can be taken to any police station during office hours by the person who made the recording, where a complaint and statement will be taken for follow-up investigation. Members of the public who are unable to attend a police station in person can alternatively telephone 131 444 and arrangements will be made for police to attend the complainant’s location at a suitable time.
