Surveillance in Baltimore

October 24, 2016 – Segment 1Baltimore Surveillance

Our panel of guests will discuss policing in Baltimore and beyond, in light of the new report out of Georgetown Law’s Center on Privacy and Technology indicating that more than half of the adults living in the U.S. are stored in a series of police facial recognition databases. The report says persons need only to have a driver’s license to be included in the searchable databases. Our panel includes: David Rocah, Senior Staff Attorney for ACLU of Maryland; Doug Ward, Director of Johns Hopkins University’s Division of Public Safety Leadership; and Ava Kofman, independent journalist who covers technology and who has been investigating face recognition funded, in part, by a grant from the Investigative Fund at The Nation Institute.
