EFF Director of Investigations will host a panel at the National Institute for Computer-Assisted Reporting (NICAR) 2021 conference on March 5, 2021 at 12pm PST. 

Local cops are deploying more and more advanced surveillance technologies, often without analyzing or mitigating the impact on communities, particularly communities of color. This panel discussion will reveal replicable tips and techniques used by reporters on the ground to reveal abuses, errors, and disproportionate policing.

The panel will feature Jesse Marx , who covers the surveillance beat at Voice of San Diego, Neil Bedi of ProPublica, a member of the reporting Tampa Bay Times team that uncovered an abusive predictive policing program), and Rebecca Rivas of the Missouri Independent, who published a groundbreaking investigation into the St. Louis real-time crime center.
