City of Davis Unanimously Adopts Surveillance Transparency


The City of Davis gave a unanimous thumbs up to surveillance transparency on March 20 at the first reading of the ordinance that requires approval prior to equipment acquisition, use policies defining acceptable and unacceptable uses and annual audits on all surveillance and spying technology.

CCOPS (Community Control of Police Surveillance) ordinances have now been unanimously adopted in Santa Clara County, Berkeley and Davis. Oakland will take up a CCOPS ordinance in April as will the Bay Area Regional Transit District.
