Police union, opposition and lawyers demand protection of QR data

Liberty Victoria president Julia Kretzenbacher said the state should replicate WA’s laws because even one instance of police being granted access via a court order would seriously undermine the public’s willingness to check in.

“This is not a matter of not trusting Victoria’s court system. It’s ensuring the public in general is confident about their data being kept private,” she said.

“Police already have a number of other strong powers available to them for criminal investigations.”
