Surveillance Technology

On June 21, 2016, the Board of Supervisors (“Board”) unanimously approved final adoption of the Surveillance-Technology and Community-Safety Ordinance, which became effective July 21, 2016. County departments with existing surveillance technology as of July 21, 2016 drafted a Surveillance Use Policy (“Policy”) for each technology. Each Policy is required to specify the purpose, authorized and prohibited uses, information/data that can be collected, data access, data protection, data retention, public access, third-party data sharing, training, and oversight mechanisms.
