Surveillance Technology Oversight Project: Support NYC’s POST Act
Posted on June 24, 2019
June 24 - 28, 2019
Currently, the New York City Council is considering adopting new legislation that would require the New York Police Department to create concrete policies governing when and how surveillance equipment and software is deployed. The legislation, known as the POST Act, would also task the NYPD with regularly informing elected city officials on the state of these policies, and how the data gathered using surveillance technology is stored.
In order to push for the measure’s approval, the Surveillance Technology Oversight Project (STOP) is asking for civil libertarians around the country to take to social media and voice their support for the POST Act. Additionally, those residing in New York are highly encouraged to contact their City Council representatives and urge them to vote in favor of enacting the legislation.
STOP is calling on supporters to tweet and post to Facebook in support of the POST Act starting on Monday, June 24 and continuing through Friday, June 28.
