Police attempted to access QR check-in data three times in December

Liberty Victoria spokesperson and public law barrister, Gemma Cafarella, says if police have access to check-in data it damages confidence in the system.

“Allowing police access means people might not check in,” she told Ross and Russel.

“This shouldn’t really be about the police, it’s about something so much bigger which is keeping us all safe, and we shouldn’t do anything which undermines the system.”
