Vice President of Liberty Victoria says that drones are a significant incursion of people's privacy

Privacy concerns have been raised over Victoria Police using drones to monitor Victorians on AFL grand final day.

Vice president of Liberty Victoria, Julia Kretzenbacher, told Tom Elliot that it is a “significant incursion of people’s privacy”.

“Even though the drones won’t be looking into backyards, they still will be focused on public areas,” she said.

“In our view that is concerning.

“It’s a bit unclear how filming people enjoying their Saturday at a park is necessary or proportionate with public health reasons.”
