Portland Surveillance Policy Development

placeholder for on-line events

This meeting will take place online. Please RSVP via the Meetup page or send an email to [email protected].



After passing a privacy resolution and two facial recognition bans, City of Portland staff are now working on drafting a policy for a surveillance ordinance for Portland. This surveillance technologies policy will focus on how the City of Portland uses, procures, and manages surveillance technologies and information.

And the policy drafters want input from you!

At this month's meeting, learn about the development of Portland's surveillance ordinance and how you can participate. Because of the complexity of such a policy, its development will be divided into three separate modules, with a discussion of the first module beginning on Wednesday, March 16th. Hector Dominguez, Open Data Coordinator at Smart City PDX, within Portland's Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, will join us at this meeting to explain the City's planned process for developing the policy and how community members can share their thoughts and insights.

Come to the meeting, join the conversation, and help create a strong and effective surveillance policy for Portland!
