What We Do

The Surveillance Advisory Working group provides recommendations and insight related to the acquisition of new surveillance technologies for the City of Seattle. When a new surveillance technology is under consideration, we create and submit an assessment to the City Council. Representatives from equity-focused organizations are vital to the success of the working group.
