The New York City Council is at it this time.
A new bill would require the New York Police Department to disclose and describe all “surveillance technology,” which it defines as “equipment, software, or system capable of, or used or designed for, collecting, retaining, processing, or sharing audio, video, location, thermal, biometric, or similar information.” The cops would have to post this information online annually and respond to public comments.
Naturally, the ACLU thinks this is a good idea, too.
Yeah. It is a good idea to tell criminals and terrorists just how they’re being identified and might be preempted. Sure.
