Closed 21 Feb 2016

Opened 25 Jan 2016

Results updated 16 Oct 2019

This survey was conducted with members of the Bristol Citizens' Panel and the results are shown in the files listed below.




A body-worn camera is any style of camera which is carried or fixed to clothing, capable of capturing both video and audio information.

If introduced, body-worn video cameras will be used for the following specified purposes:

•   To discourage abuse of taxi marshals, taxi drivers and members of the public are subjected.

•   To prevent, deter and detect crime, criminal damage, public disorder and nuisance.

•   To provide the Police, Council, and other authorised organisations with evidence upon which to take criminal and civil actions in the Courts.

•   To reduce the number of unfounded allegations being made against taxi marshals.

We want to know your views on the use of body-worn video cameras and whether you think they will improve your experiences of city centre taxi ranks.
