State and local law enforcement agencies around the country have been adopting high tech surveillance tools – like drones, biometric fingerprint readers, and facial recognition tools – in increasingly high numbers. But communities around the country (including many in Massachusetts!) are fighting back.
Attend our meeting on police surveillance on Wednesday, May 2nd to learn about community control over police surveillance, and how you can take action to help us pass an ordinance in Worcester. The ACLU model ordinance requires accountability, transparency, and meaningful community input about whether the city can purchase surveillance technology and how it is used.
We are ready to advance this ordinance in Worcester, but we need your help! Please join us to learn how together, we can improve police accountability and transparency.
This event is free and open to the public. Parking is available on both sides of King Street.
