The EFF today unveiled the Surveillance Atlas. It is a database of surveillance technologies used by law enforcement agencies across the country. Anyone can use it to see what spy technology the LE is using in its state. You can also download datasets.
We have focused specifically on the most common technologies, including drones, body-worn cameras, facial recognition, cell site simulators, automated license plate readers, predictive policing, registry cameras and gun detection. Although we have accumulated more than 5,000 data points in 3,000 jurisdictions, our research reveals only the tip of the iceberg and highlights the need for journalists and members of the public to continue to demand transparency from justice bodies criminal.
