Take Action: San Francisco Holding Critical Public Mtgs on Video Surveillance Next Week

San Francisco's public video surveillance program has expanded from two cameras to over 100 in just over a year. This program may spy on even more places that ordinary people live, work, and walk every day -- unless city residents make their voices heard now and oppose this ineffective, expensive, and privacy-invasive program.

Next week, the city will hold two public meetings regarding new cameras at 16th and Mission Sts:

  • December 4: Mission Neighborhood Community Meeting hosted by Supervisor Chris Daly at 6 PM at the Marshall Elementary School cafeteria at 1575 15th Street (15th and Capp).
  • December 6: San Francisco Police Commission meeting at 5:30 p.m. at San Francisco City Hall, Room 400, San Francisco, California.

If you're a city resident, it's critical that you attend these meetings and take a stand against pervasive video surveillance. If you can't attend, send an email (sfpd.commission@sfgov.org) or call (415-553-1667) the Police
Commission and let them know you oppose implementation of the cameras.
