New project shows scope of police surveillance

by EFF

The Electronic Frontier Foundation with the help of several volunteers, students, and using public and private datasets, has published the Atlas of Surveillance, an new project that serves as a database of the police surveillance technology “deployed by law enforcement in communities across the United States.”

The project tracks where drones, bodycams, automated license plate readers, facial recognition technology, among others are used.

The database serves as a searchable map, where you can navigate to any city, town, or district, and see what technology is deployed there, when the technology was first used, and the source where the information came from.
