Portland Surveillance Technologies Policy
Online event

Last year, the Smart City PDX team and Portland's Office of Equity and Human Rights began work to create a surveillance policy for the City of Portland. They held several events over the course of the year: some were intended to educate the local community about the policy and why one is needed, while others provided an opportunity for community members to give input on what they felt should be included in the surveillance policy. A draft of the proposed legislation is now ready and will be presented to city council later this year:

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 the details of the proposed policy along with information about how you can still participate in the process.

Come to the meeting, and learn about the plan for surveillance policy in Portland!

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

Speaker bio: Hector Dominguez is the Open Data Coordinator at the City of Portland. In 2009, Portland became the first city in the United States to adopt an Open Data Resolution to encourage the expansion of the technological community by promoting open data and partnerships between City government and the public, private and nonprofit sectors, academia, and labor.
