Portland's Surveillance Inventory Draft

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.



In February of last 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. During the summer, Smart City PDX and the Office of Equity and Human Rights held a series of public events and released a survey to gather input from local communities to help determine what information should be included in the inventory.

After analyzing the public comments, Smart City PDX recently released a draft version of the surveillance technologies inventory specification, which is available here: https://www.portland.gov/bps/smart-city-pdx/surveillance-policy/documents/surveillance-technologies-inventory-specification/download

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 discuss the draft surveillance technology inventory specification and to share details of how you can still give input into the inventory.

Come to the meeting, and learn about Portland's surveillance inventory, and bring your questions!

This event is co-hosted by PDX Privacy and Portland's Techno-activism 3rd Mondays. Please RSVP via the Meetup page or by sending an email to [email protected].
