Portland Surveillance Technology Inventory

placeholder for on-line events

This is an online event. A link to join the meeting will be provided upon registration, or you can email [email protected] for the link.



As you likely know, cities around the world are increasingly adopting surveillance technologies in the hope of solving a variety of problems. While these technologies may have potential benefits for a city's residents, they can also harm some communities and can have a negative impact on people's civil liberties.

Earlier this year, Portland's City Council passed a surveillance policy resolution to increase transparency and accountability in the use of surveillance technologies in Portland. As part of the resolution, Smart City PDX has been tasked with designing and implementing a citywide inventory of surveillance technologies owned or used by City Bureaus โ€” and they want your input!

At this month's meeting, Hector Dominguez, Open Data Coordinator at Smart City PDX, within Portland's Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, will join us to share information about the surveillance technology inventory and how its development is progressing.

His team has put together a survey where you can submit your thoughts about what information should be included in the inventory: https://arcg.is/10u9Cf0

Take the survey; then come to the meeting, and bring your questions and ideas about what information should be included in the inventory!

Please RSVP via this Meetup page or by sending an email to [email protected].
